Fourth Funding Call
We held our final “Research Development” funding call in summer 2022, aimed at those who have been supported by the Network over the last four years. Applicants could apply for up to £3,000 to move their research forward.
We awarded a total of £25,000 between 10 projects. We were thrilled to offer funding to five new projects, all led by members of our first GROW early career researcher development programme. We were also able to offer additional funding to five projects we have been supporting over the last few years.
In line with the aims of Emerging Minds and expectations of the funding call, all of these projects had early career researchers within their teams, and the majority were led by ECRs. They also all had multi-disciplinary involvement.
