Manchester Metropolitan University and the University of Manchester will shortly be launching the next round of the Joint Health Research Accelerator Award.
The scheme is targeted at academics across the four Health Research Centres (Manchester Met) and within the Faculty of Biology, Medicine and Health (UoM) to forge collaborative research that addresses a health research problem of strategic significance within the two Universities.
These awards provide pump-priming funds to allow collaborating researchers from the two institutions to obtain preliminary data that will ultimately feed into an application for external funding.
Applications must: be led by a PI who has a substantive contract of employment within either University, and include an Early Career Researcher as a Co-Investigator.
The award will be a maximum of £10,000, and must be spent within 12 months of the award being made.
The call for applications will be released in September 2016.
