Seedcorn Funding Call

Seedcorn funding applications are now open

On Monday 22nd January 2018, PVC Steve Wilks released the exciting news that there is going to be a new opportunity to apply for seedcorn funding.

Due to the success of its initial distribution, the Academic Partnerships Directorate is delighted to be able to offer seedcorn funding grants for the second year.

The seedcorn funding call will be open until March 9th 2018, and offers 10 travel grants, of up to £500 each, to Swansea University staff in order to enhance and expand the Swansea-Grenoble strategic partnership.

In 2017, those that received the grant used it on such things as: setting up conferences, preparing joint publications, networking, and preparing research funding applications. In addition, with help from the seedcorn funding a number of Colleges are scoping the development of strategic programmes.

To apply for a travel grant please contact us.
