As the objective is to provide pump-priming funds most bids are expected to be for small amounts. In any case no single grant shall exceed £4k; most will be for considerably less than this amount.
For applications to develop large proposals the funding will be typically max £7k.
Networking grants will be limited to one award per year/eligible staff member and will be for a max of £1K. Funding will be only to cover travel and accommodation cost.
In all cases there should be a departmental contribution of at least 10% of the total costs.
Level of award for Open Access publications will be based on a case by case basis.
