Research Incentive Grants aim to enable Early Career Researchers to undertake short research projects, either of a stand-alone nature or in the form of an initial study that could be expected to lead to a more extensive project.

Following an extensive review of its funding policies, the Trustees of the Carnegie Trust have decided to introduce a Peer review process to support the selection of proposals.

This new scheme aims to support the advancement of new research ideas and the exchange of skills and expertise by funding the organisation and delivery of research workshop programmes addressing issues at the forefront of current scientific, technological, environmental, intellectual, cultural or societal developments. Proposed workshops should focus on a topic of key relevance both to Scotland and globally with the aim of enabling the Scottish academic community to develop and strengthen its international leadership position.
