Antimicrobial resistance – call for funding applications and visiting researchers

The first call is now open for antimicrobial resistance awards of up to £15,000 each.

Bridging the Gaps, a programme recently funded by the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC), is offering these awards to researchers interested in developing discipline bridging activities in antimicrobial resistance research such as feasibility studies, collaborative travel and secondments. The awards are worth up to £15,000 each and a budget of £57,600 is available for this first call.

The visiting scholars programme is also open for applications. Funding is available to cover travel, accommodation and a subsistence allowance for a two month period for four visiting scholars.

The basic criteria is for all proposals to involve an applicant from the engineering and physical sciences side and another from the biomedical side. Applicants from other areas eg the social sciences are welcome to be involved, provided this criteria is met. Consideration should be made as to the benefit of the proposed activity to the antimicrobial resistance community at Nottingham and the potential to generate further activity, funding and collaboration.

Both applications have a deadline of Thursday 14 January.

Supporting documents and application forms are available on the Bridging the Gaps website, under ‘Funding’.
