CUHK-University of Manchester Research Fund
(For CUHK and UoM faculty)
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 universities and to create greater impact, a Seed-corn Fund scheme and a Strategic Research Fund scheme were established to build and strengthen research collaboration between the two universities.
a) Seed-corn Fund for Early Career Researchers
The Seed-corn Fund has been tailored to seed new partnerships between the two universities by providing initial support for high-quality research collaborations that include Early Career Researchers as active members. The aim of the fund is to lead to long-term collaborative research projects that can access external funding sources for the next phase of their research. The fund is open for proposals across all research areas. It will support up to three projects in 2021 with a maximum award of £10,000 per project.

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. Projects must align with one of the following areas of mutual research strengths of CUHK and UoM: China Studies, Translational Biomedicine, and Environment and Sustainability. The Strategic Research Fund supported three projects in 2019 with a maximum award of £45,000 per project.
