Manchester-Toronto Research Fund
The University of Manchester and the University of Toronto are contributing matching funds to support collaborative research initiatives in areas of mutual strength and shared interest.
The overall aim of the fund is to provide initial support for the development of high quality research projects in areas of mutual strength and shared interest.
Funding is available for staff at both institutions to undertake short-term visits to initiate, deepen and extend collaborative research links with a view to enabling principal investigators to make joint proposals to external funding sources for the next phase of their research.
The pump-priming fund will open for applications on Monday, 9 March 2020.
