BristolBridge funds six new projects
21 March 2016
Six new interdisciplinary short projects funded
Following BristolBridge's second funding call in February, the second tranche of pump-priming projects have been awarded funds to undertake 3 months of preliminary research using engineering and physical science (EPS) approaches to foster transformative research to combat antimicrobial resistance (AMR). The funded projects offer novel, newly collaborative and interdisciplinary research strategies with potential for real impact in tackling AMR.
Six interdisciplinary teams from across the Schools of Physics, Computer Science, Engineering Maths, Chemistry, Cellular and Molecular Medicine, Veterinary Sciences, Biological Sciences, Biochemistry, Social and Community Medicine, the South Gloucestershire and North Somerset Clinical Commissioning Groups for Urgent Care, University Hospitals NHS Trust and Public Health England were awarded funds.
The projects will commence in the spring and summer and more information is detailed under 'Research Projects - 2nd round'.
Many of the collaborations and project proposals were initiated at the BristolBridge World Cafe held in January (please see World Cafe). Project proposals were pitched in the 'developing funding proposals' session and developed further in follow-on team meetings prior to submission.
The third funding round is now open and closes on 9 May 2016 please see Funding for more details.
