Proximity To Discovery


We currently have two schemes open for applications:

Reactive Funds – providing funding to cover travel, accommodation costs and meeting expenses (where no external funding schemes exist for this purpose) to allow researchers to engage with industry and pharma contacts with a view to developing future collaboration.  Typical awards will be of a maximum £5,000.

This is a reactive scheme, so applications can be received at any time, and funds will be distributed until they run out.

Proximity to Discovery Project Funding – designed to provide flexible funding for innovative ways to enable the initial development of academic-industry collaborations.  Typical awards will be between £5,000 and £25,000.  Deadline 9am, Friday 6th July 2018.

Informal enquiries can be directed to Sarah via email or on (0191 20) 86944.
