Every scientist knows that funding is critical to research.


To guide you through the funding minefield, Plant Science has brought together all information relating to funding in one place. Whether you’re looking for current funding opportunities, recently awarded grants or information on funding bodies that support UK plant science research, look no further.

Highlighting the latest opportunities

 

By simply selecting from the options above you’ll be able to find calls and initiatives in a particular area, from a particular funder e.g. BBSRC, or in a specific category such as fellowships. You can also search for opportunities by deadline e.g. 1 month from now.

Why not sign up to the RSS feed and keep up to date on all the latest funding opportunities.

We endeavour to include as many opportunities as we can, but inevitably we might miss some out. If you know of other opportunities that we should be listed please get in contact.

For academic scientists who want to work on a collaborative project with industry and for scientists in industry who want to work on a collaborative project with an academic organisation. The scheme provides a basic salary for the researcher and a contribution towards research costs. The scheme is funded by the Royal Society, the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council, the Biotechnology and Biological Sciences Research Council, the Natural Environment Research Council, Rolls-Royce plc and BP plc. The scheme covers all areas of the life and physical sciences, including engineering, but excluding clinical medicine. The applicant must have a PhD or be of equivalent standing in their profession, hold a permanent post in a university, not-for-profit research organisation or industry in the UK and be at a stage in their career when they would particularly benefit from establishing or strengthening personal or corporate links between academia and industry. Applications involving spin-offs or small companies are encouraged.

Smart is a grant scheme which offers funding to small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) to engage in R&D projects in the strategically important areas of science, engineering and technology, from which successful new products, processes and services could emerge. The scheme supports SMEs carrying out R&D which offers potentially significant rewards and that could stimulate UK economic growth. Three types of grant are available; Proof of market, Proof of concept, Development of prototype. The batch assessment date for Round 6 of the current financial year 2014/15 is 26 March 2015 12:00 noon.

Science and Plants for Schools supports UK teachers, HLTAs and technicians with new ideas for teaching about science through plants. We offer grants between £50 and £500 to cover your time & costs in developing a teaching resource, and will offer support and scientific contacts if necessary. We also offer grants of up to £100 to fund teacher and technician-led professional development, such as TeachMeets. Proposed resources should aim to enhance students' understanding of plants at secondary and post-16, whether in a broad sense of fundamental principles, lab techniques (e.g. time-lapse photography), or a specific focus on an area of plant biology.

Investment of up to £40m in major integrated research and development projects through the Industrial Biotechnology Catalyst. There are five types of award – early stage: translation; early stage: feasibility studies; industrial research; late stage: pre-experimental feasibility studies; and late stage: experimental development – and, with the exception of translation awards which are academic, can involve a single business or be collaborative. Translation awards will support academic R&D projects that aim to translate research discoveries into new or improved industrial biotechnology technologies, processes and products. The deadline for registration is noon on 25 February 2015 and the competition close date is noon on 4 March 2015.

Investment of up to £40m in major integrated research and development projects through the Industrial Biotechnology Catalyst. There are five types of award – early stage: translation; early stage: feasibility studies; industrial research; late stage: pre-experimental feasibility studies; and late stage: experimental development – and, with the exception of translation awards which are academic, can involve a single business or be collaborative. Projects that build on recent discoveries to develop new technologies or processes for industrial biotechnology, and/or that bring together different components of a process to establish that they can work together to the point where there is a reasonable certainty that the process could be run commercially, are eligible for industrial research awards. The deadline for registration is noon on 25 February 2015 and the competition close date is noon on 4 March 2015.
