LARGE PROPOSAL PREPARATION SCHEME (LPPS)
This scheme replaces, and extends the PEER scheme (Pools Engagement with European Research) previously offered by SFC.
The LPPS funding stream is designed to provide support for SAGES members who are leading pan-SAGES, pan-institutional, large grant proposal submissions. We give an indicative definition of “large” as >= £1.5M total award value from funding agency. This scheme is designed with new and existing funding opportunities in mind: for example Global Challenges Research Fund, Industrial Strategy Challenge Fund, European Union (all funding streams), and any new pan-council initiatives arising from the establishment of UKRI on 01 April 2018.
In preparing large proposals SAGES strongly encourages remote meetings and working groups and actively discourages air travel.
The scheme can offer support in three distinct areas: namely, provision of:
Proposals must include two or more SAGES partners, and any number of non-SAGES partners.
This is an open call with no application deadline.
All applications will be reviewed by the Research & Innovation Committee (RICom).
Applications will be reviewed within 3 weeks of receipt.
