HEIF 2011-15 Central Fund: Call For Applications (2014-15)

We are pleased to announce the 2014-15 call to bid for central HEIF funding.  The total value available for this call is £40,000.

Proposals are invited for projects that can meet the following criteria.  The project must:

  • Fit with the University’s Strategic plan and the HEIF 2011-15 Institutional Plan
  • Demonstrate credible potential for external impact and income generation
  • Be approved by Dean and Head of School / Centre

Given the limited funding available, we are looking to make a maximum of five awards.  As this is the last year of the current HEIF funding, the project must be completed and the money spent by the end of June 2015.

Proposals that build on the work of projects that have previously received faculty HEIF funds (up to a maximum of £10,000) and have been identified by the relevant Faculty as having potential to grow will be especially welcome.
