Research Development Fund 2015/16: Apply now

Warwick’s Research Development Fund (RDF) is now open to applications for activity taking place between 1 August 2015 and 31 July 2016.

The RDF provides pump-priming funds for the development of external funding applications. Projects can vary in size and awards are supported under its strategic or development strands.

Strategic awards

An annual competition to provide up to £25,000 of pump-priming support for the development of new research initiatives which are innovative and clearly of a strategic nature. Projects should ideally be inter- or multi-disciplinary and must show clearly that they will lead directly to future bids for external funding.

Deadline: Friday 22 May 2015, 4pm

Development awards

Rolling funds available for modest support for research activity specifically related to department / faculty / University strategic priorities.

Applications which seek support for the development of larger scale European funding bids are particularly encouraged, and some RDF funds will be ringfenced to support this activity. Projects must show clearly that they will lead directly to future bids for external funding.
