Cross-Disciplinary Award

Cross-Disciplinary Research Awards are designed to promote research innovation aligned to new interdisciplinary research, including collaboration with researchers from other Colleges in the University around strategically important biomedical research questions.

Awards must be led by a researcher based in the College of Biomedical and Life Sciences, but inclusion of applicants from other Colleges at Cardiff University and / or from other external institutions (such as our GW4 partners) will be viewed positively.

The Cross-Disciplinary Research Award will fund exciting and innovative cross-disciplinary projects which have the potential to significantly advance discovery in the chosen research area. We will fund new projects that bring together distinct research expertise to address priority research problems where there is a clear pathway to sustainable external funding. Such projects also provide an opportunity to train early career researchers across disciplinary boundaries, placing them in a competitive position to obtain independent research funding.

Round G notice: Please note that this round of applications will not require a co-investigator from another College within Cardiff University. However, please ensure the project focus continues to reflect the cross-disciplinary research remit of this call.

'Giving this relatively small amountof money to an established PI maysometimes be a drop in the ocean, but to an ECR such as myself it’s already having ahuge impact.'

Jennifer Davies, School of Healthcare Sciences
