What can I apply for?
The scheme will be open to a wide range of projects, initiatives and activities that meet the scheme aims. Examples could include research projects, data collection, pilot studies, seed funding towards the development of larger projects, resource development, or activities to support networking, community development and sharing of best practices. This list is non-exhaustive, and we welcome creative ideas which address the above aims.
Please note that for consistency, we refer to any eligible project, initiative or activity as “project” in our documentation for this grant scheme.
Projects and their outcomes should relate to or have impact on chemical sciences research, and must also have benefits to the wider community beyond the grant recipient. Project ideas involving collaboration within and beyond chemistry are also welcome.
Sustainable Laboratories Grants will not be awarded to:
- projects which do not focus on improving environmental sustainability in chemical sciences research practice
- projects whose primary aim is to generate a financial surplus or for commercial development;
- projects for which our support would not significantly enhance the activity;
- projects which are unlikely to have wider benefit beyond the grant recipient or where wider benefit is not clearly articulated
Please read the Guidance for Applicants for full details.
