The purpose of the Collaborative Research Grants Scheme is to support joint research projects that bring together researchers from more than one Scottish university to develop new lines of study or to advance significantly existing areas of expertise.
The principal criterion for the award of a CRG is that the planned research is of excellent quality and is likely to be of benefit to two or more of the universities of Scotland (research consortium). The joint project must involve the active collaboration of researchers in at least two of the Scottish universities.
Grants of up to a maximum of £50,000 may be awarded and the Trust expect to make at least 8 awards in 2015.
More details about the scheme and an application form can be found on the CRG page. The deadline for submitting proposals is 31st January 2015, 5PM.
