Call for proposals

QSRI will co-fund Workshops consistent with its objectives focused on quantitative sciences. We encourage participants to come together to exchange the latest developments and ideas in their areas, to foster new collaborations and new interdisciplinary interactions, and to provide a forum for rigorous research-oriented discussions.


Opens: TBC (the next call will open in early 2020 - please register to our mailing list to keep up to date)

Level of award

The maximum contribution from QSRI will be £8,000 or 50% of total eligible workshop costs, whichever is the lower. For example, if the total expected costs of your workshop are £10k, you can claim up to £5k from QSRI with the remaining funding coming from other sources. In addition, the QSRI team can offer advice such as on venues, catering etc and provide support related to finances and event webpage.

Small event scheme

These awards are set at a maximum of £1,000. The eligibility criteria remains the same as for the workshops call with the exception that there is no requirement on finding co-funding for your event. In addition, the small event scheme operates on a running basis, so there are no specific deadlines. Support for such an event should normally be sought at least one month in advance of expenditure. Please contact us if you would like to discuss such an event.
