BRC Project Funding

Funding awards to pump-prime high-quality studies and provide pilot, proof of concept or de-risking for external funding applications

What we offer

Our BRC Project Grants are intended for BRC members, to pump-prime high-quality studies and provide pilot, proof of concept or de-risking for external funding applications. BRC Project Grant applications must demonstrate the three following key aspects: excellence in science, translational opportunity, and capability to leverage external funding and opportunity.

We offer individual project awards over a maximum two-year period. We accept applications for projects both with and without existing funds in place, however, if the project is already being financially supported in some form, it must be shown what added value the Exeter BRC Project Grant will have – the application form will provide an opportunity to outline this.

We are delighted to have already awarded funds to 28 projects, spread across our five research themes.
