Research Capacity Building Awards 2020

Mar 25 2020 Posted: 12:00 GMT

VP for Equality & Diversity, Prof Anne Scott, is delighted to announce the awarding of up to 10 Athena SWAN Research Capacity Building Grants to academics from across all four colleges who have had an extended period of leave connected with caring in their career history. The Athena SWAN Mid-Career Lecturer Research Capacity Building Grants were established to support women and men in building their independent research careers by providing support to help mitigate the impact of an extended leave period on research activities. 

Last year was the final year of the initial three-year pilot programme of the grant, rolled out as a part of the Athena SWAN Action Plan. A report on awardee feedback has been undertaken and a review of the grant terms & conditions has taken place prior to the 2020 call for applications. The Research Capacity Building grant is operated in collaboration with the College Offices and is managed through the Vice-Deans for Research and College Research Committees. To find out more information on the grant please review the policy, or contact your Vice-Dean for Research.
