The Centre for Excellence in Learning and the Centre for Excellence in Media Practice invite new applications for funding (up to £3000) to develop research outputs and impact and to enhance the research environment in relation to the Research Excellence Framework Unit of Assessment: Education.
Up to three proposals will be funded in this round.
This fund is exclusively to support the development of research and the generation of research impact in close alignment with BU’s UoA25 strategy, sub-themes and development spending plan. It is expected that recipients of funding will work towards submission to UoA25 in REF 2020. Staff applying for new funds, having been in receipt of UoA25 funding in 2015-16 will be subject to a review of outputs / impact generated from previous funding.
Funds can be used for the following kinds of activity:
- Research output generation
- New project development
- Impact generation
- Research events (hosting, arranging)
- Data conversion
NB conference attendance should be funded through faculty QR budgets.
Applications are particularly welcome from groups of staff with clear capacity-building objectives for UoA25.
PGR students will need to demonstrate that this funding is specifically for UoA25 related activity and cannot be covered by the standard PGR development funds.
Applications – uoa25-funding-application-2016-17 – can be submitted up to January 13th 2017, and are particularly welcome from groups of staff with clear capacity-building objectives for UoA25.
Line manager or supervisor support is required for the level of commitment to the activities proposed.
All funds must be spent or committed by the end of July 2017.
