Leverhulme Trust announce 2013 Programme Grant topics  

The Leverhulme Trust has announced the topics for its 2013 Programme Grants. These fund multi-disciplinary research teams to enable them to "explore significant thematic issues by undertaking a group of interlinked research projects which taken together can lead to a new understanding".

One award of up to £1.75M will be made in each area.

For 2013 these are:

  • The Nature of Knots
  • Innovation for Sustainable Living

More information on the topics is available.

If you have an idea for a project:

Please contact me Susie Douglas or Sarah Jones by Friday 1 March with a paragraph describing your idea.

RDSO will be organising a meeting at the end of March where interested parties can present their ideas with a view that you can work with colleagues to develop the most promising idea(s) into a full proposal.

The deadline for the call is 3 October which gives us plenty of time for developing a collaborative proposal.

If you are submitting a paragraph on a research idea, please also fill out the relevant doodle poll below showing your availability for a late-March meeting.
