The City of Culture University Partnership Presents a new, exciting funding call
‘Feel Connected, Get Creative - Coventry Creates’.
The University Partnership is pleased to announce funding of up to £2,000 per project to commission a range of artistic works that can be shared digitally. We would like to commission local artists and creative organisations to collaborate with researchers from Warwick and/or Coventry University in order to create novel artworks in response to research projects.
BonLab takes the International Polymer Colloids Group online in exciting global weekly science webinar series
The International Polymer Colloid Group (IPCG) was founded in 1972 as a global forum for the exchange of ideas and emerging research activities for scientists and engineers from both academia and industry who study or use polymer colloids.
It is a vibrant scientific international community who normally meet face-to-face every two years to discuss the latest global developments related to polymer colloid science (2013 Shanghai, 2015 New Hampshire, 2017 the Basque Country, 2019 Singapore).
As a result of the global COVID19 pandemic, prof. dr. ir. Stefan Bon came up with the idea to take the IPCG forum online with a series of weekly scientific webinars, called the i-PCG 2020 Webinars. Anyone who is interested in science can participate as audience member, or even better, as presenter. Expect to interact with the world top in polymer colloid, with expert participants from industry, academia and enthusiasts. All is free.
Deadline: 7 May 2020
The Circular Economy Network+ in Transportation Systems (CENTS) has received funding from the EPSRC to build a UK-wide community of academic, industry and policy experts to deliver future designs, business models and manufacturing approaches so that emergent transport systems are inherently circular.
From 31 March 2020, CENTS invites proposals for collaborations between academic and industry partners that will enable cross-disciplinary, foresightful and risky early stage research. Applications involving Early Career Researchers (ECRs) are particularly encouraged. Projects are expected to be approximately 6 months in length. The expectation is to fund up to five projects of up to a maximum value of £50,000 at full Economic Cost (fEC), with funding to be awarded at 80% fEC.
Knowledge Transfer Partnerships (KTPs) are one of the biggest schemes we fund as part of our commitment to knowledge exchange. The KTP scheme's mission is to strengthen the UK's competitiveness and wealth creation by enabling research organisations to apply their research knowledge to important business problems.
At the heart of each KTP is a relationship between a company/organisation and staff in a knowledge base institution. The institution's staff apply their expertise to a project that will help the development of their collaborative partner. The project is carried out by an associate (a recent graduate or postgraduate), who also benefits from an organised training programme. In the process, the business relevance of the knowledge base institution is enhanced.

Further information about KTPs, including contact details for KTP Offices and KTP Advisers is available on the KTP website.
UK Research and Innovation (UKRI) invites proposals for interdisciplinary networks under the second wave of the Strategic Priorities Fund (SPF) Clean Air programme.
The aim of the second wave of funding is to equip the UK to proactively tackle new and emerging air quality challenges related to changing emissions and exposure patterns and impacts on vulnerable groups of people. The programme objectives are to:
- Build a new UK interdisciplinary community at the interface of indoor/outdoor air quality emissions, exposure and health impacts.
- Deliver new knowledge that:
- provides critical foresight on emerging air pollution challenges and associated health risks; and
- enables us to better understand and quantify human behavioural change and practices and how to influence through communication and technology interventions in order to limit exposure routes and mitigate health risks at vulnerable stages of the life course.
- Provide consistent, evidence-based advice for stakeholders through open data and tools in order to stimulate policy and regulatory innovation.
- Stimulate business-led innovation for sustainable products and services to protect health at the indoor/outdoor interface and grow UK businesses.
