Launch of Internal funding call: COVID-19 rapid response grants


Deadline for applications: Tuesday 14th April, 12pm


The University’s institutional grants for translational research and impact acceleration have come together to launch this COVID-19 rapid response cross-disciplinary funding scheme. 


Funding is available for translational research projects across all disciplines which have credible potential impact in tackling the COVID-19 pandemic.  We expect to fund projects to start immediately or in a very short timescale. Funded projects will be expected to achieve successful outcomes in a short space of time and to be completed within one year.


University academic staff from any discipline may apply, however projects must be able to be carried out without access to currently closed University buildings and laboratories. Applications may include, but are not limited to: clinical trials, data modelling, development of software tools.


Further details are provided on the Guidance Document which includes full guidance for applicants and the application form. Please send any questions to and completed applications should also be sent to by 12 noon on 14th April.
