CATALYST GRANT

Building upon previous rounds of partnership seed funding (2018) and Fellowships and Project grants (2020), Catalyst Grants are intended to support larger-scale initiatives with the aim of securing external funding and/or producing high-level outputs and impact. It is anticipated that academic staff at both Universities, with excellent and complementary expertise and capability, will have already established a working relationship and track record that can be demonstrated as part of the application.

Applications up to a maximum GBP £20,000 / CAD $34,000 are invited, with the following objectives:

  • To position the project group to win major external funding, publish significant research, and/or influence national/international policy.
  • To address research questions and/or to develop innovative teaching and learning initiatives with the potential for high-impact that could not be as effectively carried out by a partner on its own.
  • To facilitate further development of novel research and/or teaching and learning concepts to the point of submission of bid(s) for significant external funding.
  • To expedite ground-breaking interdisciplinary research and/or teaching and learning initiatives, taking them to the next level.

Deadline for applications: February 9, 2022
