Pump Priming Research Projects

Funding for these projects will usually be for one year but may be as short as six months or up to two years under exceptional circumstances. Pump priming will typically be awarded to a specific individual undertaking a specific project with a view to acquiring sufficient data to subsequently apply for either project grant or fellowship funding from national grant awarding bodies.

It would be anticipated that an applicant applying for such money would be working within an already established unit within the North East Region and would have a senior, tenured, colleague on the research application. Such projects will be evaluated on the quality of both the project and the applicant. Typically these projects could be up to £50,000 per annum.
