FoNS Strategy Research Funding (FSRF)
The Faculty of Natural Sciences wish to support industrial collaborations to stimulate new research directions and to enhance our research impact, noting the requirement for REF impact cases. From February 2020 the FoNS Strategy Research Fund has allocated its limited resources to foster new initiatives to engage more effectively with external SME partners. Support is provided via two initiatives: (1) SME Engagement Funding and (2) Travel grants to visit potential industrial partners. These schemes welcome multi-disciplinary projects, but the Faculty will allocate its FSRF to support FoNS researchers only. For any questions related to the FSRF funding, please contact Ester Buchaca-Domingo. More information can be found on the FoNS Strategy Research Fund webpage
