Platform Grants

Please note: the Platform Grant scheme will close following the 26 May 2017 deadline for outline proposals.

Platform Grants are a flexible mechanism of providing underpinning funding to well established, world leading research groups.

Platform Grant funding provides a baseline of flexible support (a platform) that can be used for the retention of key staff, feasibility studies, longer-term research and International Networking. This flexibility should enable the group to take a strategic view of their research which will be enhanced by the submission of standard research applications during the lifetime of the Platform Grant.
