Large research projects
This scheme supported well-defined research projects enabling individual researchers to collaborate with, and bring benefits to, other individuals and organisations through the conduct of research. Less established as well as more established senior scholars were funded, in addition to those wishing to undertake small-scale innovative shorter projects as well as larger scale and more costly ones. Some successful projects included a linked studentship. The scheme provided awards for projects with full economic costs between £10,000 and £600,000 for a varying duration up to a maximum of three years. Fifteen projects were funded.
