Grants will be offered for up to three years duration. Applications for less than two years should include a named researcher with the relevant expertise, familiar with the laboratory.


Applicants can be based outside the UK and Ireland, provided the project is unique in concept or design (ie no similar research is being performed in the UK) and involves a significant aspect of collaboration with a UK institute.
