Research Initiation Awards
This scheme is only open to people or organisations from outside the university.
These small awards (£300 – £500) are not for research activities as such; our aim is to support individual applicants, or community organisations, to build the relationships that initiate engaged research and generate the conditions for future engaged research.
We welcome creative and imaginative proposals for how this award could be used: hosting a workshop, making a creative intervention that opens up engagement around cultures and environments of health, working with a professional researcher to develop a research idea, setting up a small social media campaign to draw people to an issue or topic … we are open to suggestions.

(NB: we have recently revised this information in the light of experience and feedback, so even if you’ve applied before, we recommend having another look.)
