UK-RAS Network Ad hoc Funding Scheme launched

We are pleased to announce the start of our funding cycle from the University of Manchester Hub of UK-RAS, with the launch of the Ad hoc Funding scheme today.

Ad-hoc funding is available to members for up to £2k at 100% full Economic Cost. 

We are looking for:  

  • High risk, or particularly novel areas of research, and proofs of concept.  
  • Academic activities that can’t be funded in other ways but are nonetheless of potential value to UK-RAS Network and the field.  
  • Ad hoc networking with other researchers/labs to benefit collaborations worth pursuing that may be outside the remit of your project.  
  • Activities to encourage diversity, inclusion, and outreach.  

We hope these examples may help, they are by no means exhaustive and we aim to be open to all good proposals.

This funding stream will be open the entire life of the Manchester UK-RAS Hub, closing six months before the network’s final end date.  

You and access the application form and submission details.
