Reminder: Call for Proof of Concept funding now open

Posted by rmt22 at Apr 14, 2016 10:38 AM |
This is your chance to bid for grants of up to £25,000 to support research projects which are working towards being commercially successful.

The latest call for Proof of Concept (PoC) funding is now open. With grants of up to £25,000 available, the aim of PoC funding is to encourage researchers to develop, test and take forward new ideas and technologies towards a commercial outcome.

Projects will be supported by the Commercialisation team, part of our Research and Enterprise Division. They will be able to advise you on whether or not your project idea is suitable for development.

You can now read about some of the successful projects supported by PoC funding in our new Funding for enterprise brochure which will be circulated to academic staff more widely in the coming weeks.

You have until 18 April 2016 to register your interest in the scheme. Further information is available online or contact Dr Declan Cummins at or on 0116 223 1347.
