(For CUHK and UoM faculty)
Deadline: 17:00 GMT, 26 April 2019, Friday
The Chinese University of Hong Kong (CUHK) and The University of Manchester (UoM) share a common vision to expand the frontiers of knowledge and contribute to the betterment of societies. To capitalise on the research strengths of both world-class universities and to create greater impact, a joint CUHK-UoM Research Fund was established in 2015–16 to build and strengthen research collaboration between the two universities.
In recognition of the success achieved during the past three years, the joint research fund has developed into a second phase with two tracks:
a) Seed-corn Fund
The Seed-corn Fund is intended for researchers at CUHK and UoM to undertake short-term exchange visits to jointly define new research questions or to consolidate existing links. It allows for initial groundwork including meetings, team building, and in some instances paper writing or pilot studies. All subject areas will be accepted and proposals related to the following fields are encouraged: Cancer, Neuroscience, Energy and Climate Change, Future Cities, Advanced Materials, and Global Inequalities. The Seed-corn Fund will support up to three projects in 2019 with a maximum award of £10,000 per project. This current call invites applications for the Seed-corn Fund.
b) Strategic Research Fund
The Strategic Research Fund aims to support projects resulted from efforts supported by the Seed-corn Fund or other existing collaborations as well as research projects that are related to the strategic research areas of CUHK and UoM. It seeks to support research projects that address novel research questions and generate preliminary data that will lay the ground for future large-scale external research bids. The Strategic Research Fund will support up to two projects in 2019 with a maximum award of £45,000 per project. The application call for the Strategic Research Fund will be announced in May 2019. The priority areas will be publicised in due course.
