Research Leadership Awards

Supporting talented researchers who have successfully launched a university career but who need to build a research team to address a distinct research problem. Between £800,000 and £1million over four to five years for staff salaries and associated research costs.

The aim is to support talented scholars who have successfully launched a university career but who need to build a research team of sufficient scale to tackle a distinctive research problem. This creates an opportunity for the development and demonstration of research leadership; that is, for the direction of a modest team or group, whose research may significantly change the established landscape in a particular field of inquiry. Each institution is limited to one bid only.

Once a university has selected their chosen candidate, they should provide the Trust with the applicant’s name, departmental affiliation and email address. Access will then be granted to the Trust’s online Grant Application System.

Value and Duration

The awards will be for a sum of between £800,000 and £1 million, over four to five years.

Topics

Applications for research in any subject area within the Trust’s normal remit will be eligible for support.
