  • 31 July 2014: Isaac Newton Institute for Mathematical Science, Research programmes in mathematical sciencesThe Institute now invites proposals for 1-, 4- and 6-month research programmes in any branch of the mathematical sciences
  • 28 August 2014: EPSRC, International research in Security (IRIS)Proposals are invited from UK academics for projects that will support Fellows from India, Israel or Japan conducting cyber security research, and forming associated collaborative links, within the UK. Proposals in any area in relation to cyber security, including social, economic and mathematical sciences, are invited.
  • 1 September 2014, Leverhulme Trust Research Project GrantsThe aim of these awards is to provide financial support for innovative and original research projects of high quality and potential, the choice of theme and the design of the research lying entirely with the applicant (the Principal Investigator). The grants provide support for the salaries of research staff engaged on the project, plus associated costs directly related to the research proposed, and the award is paid directly to the institution at which the applicant is employed
  • 1 September 2014, Leverhulme Trust International NetworksThese collaborations enable a Principal Investigator based in the UK to lead a research project where its successful completion is dependent on the participation of relevant overseas institutions. A significant research theme must be identified at the outset which requires for its successful treatment international collaboration between one or more UK universities, and two or more overseas institutions (up to a maximum of seven institutions in total). Networks must be newly constituted collaborations. Applicants should provide an explicit statement as to why a network is the most appropriate format for addressing the chosen research theme. Full justification should be given for the involvement of all participants, with each participant bringing specific – and stated – expertise which can directly contribute to the success of the project. Details of the proposed methodology for the research project should be provided at the outset, as well as a clear indication of the anticipated outcomes (publications, websites), and of the dissemination strategy to be adopted.
  • 23 September 2014: Winston Churchill Memorial Trust – Travelling FellowshipsFunding for British citizens to travel anywhere in the world for between four and eight weeks, with the aim of gaining knowledge and experience that will enhance effectiveness at work and contribution to the community
  • 7 October 2014L EPSRC, Collaborative Computational Projects: Networking and Core Support. Funding available to support new and existing Collaborative Computational Projects (CCPs) critical to research and research communities within the EPSRC’s remit.
  • 9 October 2014: Leverhulme Trust Visiting ProfessorshipThe objective of these awards is to enable distinguished academics based overseas to spend between three and twelve months inclusive at a UK university, primarily in order to enhance the skills of academic staff or the student body within the host institution. It is recognised that Visiting Professors may also wish to use the opportunity to further their own academic interests. The over-riding criteria for selection are first the academic standing and achievements of the visitor in terms of research and teaching, and secondly the ability of the receiving institution to benefit from the imported skills and expertise. Priority will be given to new or recent collaborative ventures
  • 15 October 2014: Google Inc Google Faculty Research AwardsFunding is available on a worldwide basis to support university faculty members undertaking novel research in computer science, engineering and related fields.
