Brigstow Seedcorn funding 2021 - 2022

Closing date: Monday 6th December 2021 at 15:00 

Funding limits: £4,000-£7,000 per award 

This is an opportunity for mixed teams of researchers to carry out risky, experimental, and exploratory projects to take the first steps in developing and pursuing new research questions. We especially welcome applications from teams that might find it difficult to find early-stage funding because of the novelty of the ideas, methods or approaches. 


What Brigstow is looking for in a seedcorn application: aims and values 

Funds are available to initiate and develop partnerships to undertake early-stage, experimental research pilots. This funding is also suitable if you received Ideas Exchange or network funding from us before and are now ready to embark upon testing those ideas through a seedcorn research project. 

We expect all seedcorn projects to be driven by a research question that is co-created by everyone involved in the project. Depending on the research question, the research may need a range of disciplines in the university (interdisciplinarity) and/or might require diverse partners within and outside the university working together (co-production) to bring their different knowledge and expertise to bear. Projects should be co-created, co-designed and co-led, and we value co-making as a part of the research process. We encourage project teams to aspire to equity amongst team members with everyone’s expertise respected, and trust and open communication across the team.

About this funding 

Typically £4,000-7,000 per grant, although larger bids of up to £10k will be considered. Funding can be used to buy in expertise, pay for researchers, hardware costs, consumables or travel needed to work together. Unfortunately, the funding cannot be used to buy out full-time academic staff time. Further information about eligibility and assessment criteria can be found on the Seedcorn 2021- 2022 webpage.
