Research Capacity Building Awards 2019

Aug 01 2019 Posted: 12:00 IST

The VP for Equality & Diversity, Prof Anne Scott, is delighted to announce the awarding of 10 Athena SWAN Research Capacity Building Grants to academics from across all five colleges who have had an extended period of leave connected with caring in their career history. The Athena SWAN Mid-Career Lecturer Research Capacity Building Grants were established to support women and men in building their independent research careers by providing support to help mitigate the impact of an extended leave period on research activities. 

This will be the final year in the three-year pilot programme of the grant, rolled out as a part of the Athena SWAN Action Plan. A report on awardee feedback has been undertaken and a review of the grant terms & conditions will then take place for 2020. The Research Capacity Building grant is operated in collaboration with the College Offices and is managed through the Vice-Deans for Research and College Research Committees. To find out more information on the grant please review the policy, or contact your Vice-Dean for Research.
