  • Support for the preparation of proposals in the area of data science
  • Support for the development of new collaborative networks which may involve both internal and external partners

Applications should be up to £10,000, although larger proposals may be considered if they are of exceptional merit.

Proposals should be up to six months in duration and funds should be expended by 31st July 2017. An end of grant report will be requested following the completion of the project.
