Research Institutes Fund

Now open: Research Institutes Fund 2023-24 (formerly the Pioneer Awards)

A funding call for staff and PGRs - The Research Institutes Fund

Please note that there are two calls (and deadlines) that span the academic year 23-2024.

These Awards offer a uniquely supportive environment where collaborative and interdisciplinary projects are specifically encouraged. They offer funding for research projects (including networking and engagement activities).

We invite applications from staff and PGRs from all Faculties. Applications from PGRs must include a named member of academic staff/supervisor who will act as project approver.

Please note, if your application is successful, you will have 12 months to use the funds allocated in support of your project and in-line with your application.

The name change of this fund follows the ongoing work at NU to decolonise its activities.
