Funding call now open: ICMS KE Catalyst

29 May 2024

The ICMS Knowledge Exchange (KE) Catalyst scheme supports mathematical scientists who wish to engage in KE activities in direct collaboration with an industry, public sector, or third sector partner. It is a secondment scheme that allows academics to devote between 30% and 100% of their time to a research project for 6-12 months. The purpose of this scheme is to enable significant engagement and support long-term commitment to the relationship with the project partner.

Proposals are welcomed from researchers with a PhD and in a short-term or fixed-term post who want to develop their own project ideas, and academics in an open-ended or continuing post who want to free up time to dedicate to a research project.

This is an ideal opportunity for early-career researchers and established academics alike to develop a new KE partnership, build on an existing collaboration and/or generate impact from previous research. It is expected that the project will endeavour to contribute to the betterment of humanity and address positive societal change.
