Research Capacity Building Grants 2019

The VP for Equality & Diversity, Prof Anne Scott, is delighted to announce the third year of funding for the Research Capacity Building Grants will roll out across all Colleges from next week (8 April 2019). The Athena SWAN Mid-Career Lecturer Research Capacity Building Grants were established to support people who have had an extended period of leave connected with caring to build their independent research careers and provide support to help mitigate the impact of extended leave on research activities. This will be the final year in the 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 will then take place.

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. The call for applications to the grant will be operated through their offices. To find out more information on the grant please review the policy, or contact your Vice-Dean for Research.
