Apply for funding

The goal of RiGG-Net is to foster longer-term interdisciplinary interactions between academics at Warwick and other universities and between academics and stakeholders that will give rise to important new understandings and insights into issues of global governance.

To support the objectives of the network above, RiGG-Net operates a small pot of funding available to support events and seed funding for the development of external grant applications for collaborations that emerge from RiGG Net exchanges:

  1. Interdisciplinary Coffee-Catch ups (maximum per event £150)
  2. Extended networking events (maximum per event £250)
  3. Collaborative events with external speakers (maximum per event £350)
  4. Seed funding of up to £500 each for the development of external grant applications, initially for a maximum of three teams
