Springboard Fellowships – Call for Proposals

Deadline: 26/07/2006

March 27, 2006

Springboard Fellowships provide short-term support to enable researchers in the mathematical sciences, who are permanent employees of an eligible research organisation, to work: at the interface with another discipline; with business or industry; on a particularly innovative project or a short-term feasibility study.

The aim of these awards is to provide opportunities for researchers to take time out from their normal activities in order to develop their careers in new directions and to expose them to new ways of working, with the fellowship acting as a ‘springboard’ for their future research. These fellowships are intended to be ‘pump-priming’ support that will lead to new avenues of research, new collaborations, and follow-on research projects.
