New Investigator Award

The New Investigator Award scheme is to support individuals who hold an academic lectureship position, have not previously led an academic research group or been the recipient of a significant grant (usually defined as those which included PDRA time, capital equipment or were in excess of £100,000 (FEC)).


No closing dates apply to the scheme. The New Investigator Award scheme can only be applied to once, whether previous applications were successful or not, except when permission to resubmit an application is invited after peer review. Proposals are considered in competition with other New Investigator Awards at Standard Research prioritisation panels.
