Seed grants

The institute is involved in a university-wide seed grant scheme which provides funding for interdisciplinary projects that are aligned with external partnership and collaboration objectives. 

The scheme aims to support projects that address complex, societal and industry challenges and is a great way for our partners to engage in research with us.
