Brigstow Seedcorn funding 2020-21:  CALL OPEN

Closing date: 3 February 2021, 4pm

This is an opportunity for mixed interdisciplinary 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.  

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.

You can see what Brigstow is looking for in a seedcorn application and how to apply in the 2020-21 seedcorn guidelines, checklist and applications page of our website

You can see the range of projects we've funded so far on the Projects page of the Brigstow Website, find out more about Brigstow on the About page and watch a film of our showcase event where projects were able to show people the work they'd done, on the our Youtube channel.

Once upon a time, when we couldn’t climb the hill together.

Read a lovely blog post by seedcorn funded project Once Upon a Hill: An action research inquiry into community engagements with Robinswood Hill Country Park. Here they recall their experiences of co-designing the project's research activities and reflect on the challenges Covid-19 posed to them. Find out more on our blog pages.
