The Chinese University of Hong Kong (CUHK) - UoM Seed Fund

twilight-532720 960 720

Closing date for applications: Monday 12th March 2018 

Funding available: Up to £10,000

The third call for this joint pump-priming fund with CUHK will open on Thursday 18th January. The purpose of the fund is to enable academic staff at both institutions to undertake short-term exchange visits to deepen and extend collaborative research links and to jointly define new research questions, with a view to enabling collaborators to subsequently make joint proposals to external funding agencies for the next phase of their research.

The priority areas are Cancer, Neuroscience, Energy and Climate Change, Future Cities, Advanced Materials, and Global Inequalities. Other areas where there is mutual interest from researchers will also be considered.

An award of up to GBP10,000 will be offered to each selected proposal. We aim to fund three projects in this call.

Guidelines for applicants can be found here.

Applications should be submitted online via SmartSurvey. The PI can be from either CUHK or UoM and only one joint application per project is required. The deadline is 17:00 GMT Monday 12 March 2018.
