Industry exchange funding for biomedical science and technology - apply by 5 April

last modified Mar 21, 2017 11:50 AM
Academics and industrial collaborators may apply for funding to carry out collaborative research in any area of biomedical science and technology through the Cambridge Academy of Therapeutic Sciences.

This internal funding call is open now until 5 April 2017.

Funding of up to £40,000 per application is available and is particularly for collaborations with companies with which the university is not yet strongly engaged.

Either an academic would spend time in industry or an industrial collaborator would spend time in the university for up to six months. Research exchanges may be taken up full-time or part-time.

The application must be led by a Principle Investigator employed by the University but the Exchange Fellow may be the PI, an industrial scientist or – in some cases – a postdoctoral research associate.

Funding may be used for travel and consumables. Salary will also be covered in the case of an outward fellowship and may be covered for an inward fellowship where the industry partner is a small company. In kind funding from the industry partner is welcomed but is not a prerequisite.

The exchange, whether outward or inward, must commence by 1 July 2017.

Please read the requirements in full before completing a proposal form. To discuss eligibility or for help in seeking a suitable collaborator please contact:

Dr Andrea Walker, Research Facilitator, Cambridge Academy of Therapeutic Sciences (CATS) on Andrea.Walker@admin.cam.ac.uk or 01223 765056.
