The 2017/18 Bridge Seed Fund is now open for applications and will close on Friday 16th March 2018.
An annual ‘BRIDGE Seed Fund’ of $200,000 has been jointly established to stimulate wider academic engagement between the University of Illinois at Urbana–Champaign and the University of Birmingham to which faculty members at each institution are encouraged to apply. There are no restrictions on the forms of activity undertaken with BRIDGE funding, providing they meet the criteria outlined in the guidelines. The fund is available to support research visits, workshops and exchanges with the partner institution for the purpose of developing the strategic partnership. The fund may also support meetings in third party locations where there is potential to develop and/or showcase collaboration.
