INTERNAL RESEARCH SUPPORT FUNDS 2017/18: Special Call for Applications

11 April 2018

We are inviting high quality applications to a special call of the internal research support fund. A condition of this call is that awards must be spent by 31 July 2018. The form can be found on Research development website, here.

Form and Guidance Notes

Overview

This form enables you to apply for internal research funding, which supports a range of activity based on the following criteria:

  • Sustainability of research, e.g. demonstrably leading to further research bids, collaborative projects, significant publications, or access to new research funds;
  • The contribution that the application will make to the research strategy of both the Research Centre / School and wider University;
  • Evidence of the applicant’s research and career ambitions.

What can be Funded?

The Research Support Fund will support a range of research-related activity such as participation at conferences of international standing, the preparation of large-scale bids (in general over £150,000, depending on the discipline) for external research funding, or lead to outputs of REFable quality. It will cover direct costs such as travel and accommodation, teaching time buy-out and research assistance, and conducting preparatory research trials. Under normal circumstances 50% matched funding must be evidenced, either from internal or external sources (above 50% matched funding will be at the discretion of the review panel, except for conference participation). There are limit to what funds are available and conference participation will be capped at £750 and for other activity such as bidding development or a pilot project a maximum of £3,000. There is no set format for your visit or project and examples of activity that could be funded include:

  •  Undertaking small-scale or pilot projects that will lead to the submission of larger research bids.
  • Presenting at conferences or similar events that are of international standing.
  • Research at archives and libraries (or other similar institutions), both UK and overseas.
  • Projects incorporating a research mobility component and leading to a research bid or output.
  • Specialised equipment (that is non-standard to what the University provides).
  • Small-scale buy-out of teaching.
  • Research assistance.

Please provide sufficient information in your application to allow the panel team to fully consider your application. All applications will be scored and ranked based on scientific, strategic merit and value for money. Applications that contain insufficient detail are unlikely to be funded.

How to Apply

The deadline for this Special Call is Wednesday 25 April 2018.

In line with financial regulations, all awarded funds must be spent by 31 July 2018. You will be notified of the outcome within 2 weeks of these deadlines. Applications should be completed on the attached form and emailed to Deborah Woodman, R&E Development Officer via RI-internalfunding@salford.ac.uk.

Successful applications

All applicants will be notified within 2 weeks from the call deadline date on the outcome of their application. All successful applicants will be required to submit a short report on the final outcome(s) from receiving internal funding, which should be submitted to:

Update on UK participation in EU funding programmes

29 January 2018

Given the on-going uncertainty and widespread misapprehensions about the eligibility of UK-based applicants to participate in EU research and higher education funding programmes, Universities UK (UUK) have issued a briefing note summarising the current position.

The key message is that, despite the UK’s decision to leave the EU, nothing has changed in terms of the UK’s status in EU programmes including Horizon 2020 and Erasmus+. UK-based applicants are therefore encouraged to continue to work with collaborators across the EU in developing applications for funding under both programmes.

The agreement on Phase One of the negotiations for the UK’s exit from the EU – announced in December 2017 – clarifies that the UK will continue to pay into the EU budget up until the end of the current budget period in 2020 and therefore there will be no change in the UK’s status in relation to these programmes until 2021 at the earliest.

Even in the event of a “no-deal” scenario at the end of the second phase of negotiations, the UK Government has committed to underwrite UK participants on all successful bids made by UK applicants to Horizon 2020 (and all Erasmus+ grant agreements signed) while the UK remains in the EU.

A full copy of the briefing note is available to download below. Please feel free to pass this information on to your EU-based collaborators, especially if they are in any doubt about UK-based applicants’ eligibility to apply for EU funding.

If you have any questions about any aspect of applying for EU research funding, please don’t hesitate to contact Stephen Parkinson in the Research Development Team.

Horizon 2020: Opportunities for the Socio-economic Sciences and Humanities

18 December 2017

UKRO have today released the following notice regarding H2020 and the social sciences and humanities:

Net4Society, the network of National Contact Points for Societal Challenge 6, has published a document entitled “Opportunities for Researchers from the Socio-economic Sciences and Humanities (SSH) in Horizon 2020“. The document lists the current funding opportunities with relevance to socio-economic sciences and humanities in the ‘Societal Challenges’, ‘Industrial Leadership’ and ‘Excellent Science’ parts of Horizon 2020.

This publication is designed to help applicants to find SSH-related topics across the different parts of Horizon 2020 in the 2018-2020 Work Programme.

Research Internal Support Fund / Santander Travel Fund

6 December 2017

Please be aware that the Research Internal Support Fund is currently open for applications. The following types of project are sought:

  • Undertaking small-scale or pilot projects that will lead to the submission of larger research bids.
  • Presenting at conferences or similar events that are of international standing.
  • Research at archives and libraries (or other similar institutions), both UK and overseas.
  • Projects incorporating a research mobility component and leading to a research bid or output.
  • Small-scale buy-out of teaching.
  • Research assistance.

Horizon 2020 Work Programme 2018-2020

14 November 2017

The Horizon 2020 Work Programme for 2018-2020, covering the final three years of the EU’s current research & innovation funding programme, was officially announced at the end of October. The Work Programme contains details of all of the proposed calls across all three pillars of Horizon 2020.

The list of calls announced runs in the hundreds and therefore can seem to be overwhelming to navigate. In this post therefore, we wanted to provide a brief overview of the structure of the Work Programme, a selection of some of the calls that may be of particular interest to Salford academics, along with details of where to go to find out more and to search through all of the available opportunities.

Horizon 2020 Structure

The Horizon 2020 programme is structured into three main ‘pillars’ (Excellent Science, Industrial Leadership and Societal Challenges). Each of these pillars focuses on a different type of research & innovation action: bottom-up, curiosity-driven research (Excellent Science); applied and close-to-market research & innovation actions with an industry focus (Industrial Leadership); challenge-driven collaborative research & innovation actions addressing some of the grand themes affecting both the EU and the wider world (Societal Challenges). Within each pillar there are sub-categories, all of which have their own part of the Work Programme.

 

Brexit and UK applicants’ eligibility to receive funding

We understand that some confusion may still exist about UK applicants’ eligibility to apply for and receive funding from Horizon 2020 in light of the Brexit process. The key message at the moment, both from the UK Government and the European Commission, is that the status of the UK as an EU Member State will not change until such time as the UK actually leaves the EU and that UK participants should continue applying for Horizon 2020 and other competitive EU funds.

Furthermore, the UK Government has issued a statement guaranteeing funding for UK applicants on proposals that submitted up until the date on which the UK formally leaves the EU (even those for which the outcome is not known at that date).

More information on the current situation is available on the UK Research Office’s (UKRO) website.
