Research seminar successful applications
Seminar groups are multi-institutional groups of academic researchers, postgraduate students and non-academic users who meet regularly to exchange information and ideas with the aim of advancing research within their fields. Where appropriate, seminar group members should be drawn from industry, government departments and other relevant organisations, as well as from academic institutions.
We particularly encourage seminar groups that are explicitly designed to bring together leading researchers from across disciplines to identify new research agendas or capacity building priorities.
Funding was available for UK research organisations eligible for Research Council funding (external website) to undertake these research seminars. The 2011-12 competition attracted 156 applications and 39 awards were made. This represented a success rate of 25 per cent.
In addition to the £15,000 available, £3,000 may be made available for applications where a strong case was made for the inclusion of international academics at events, or holding events abroad. The seminars competition is a non-fEC (full economic cost) competition.
The 2011-12 research seminars competition closed in November 2011.
