Cabot Institute Innovation Fund

The Cabot Institute Innovation Fund allows us to support bold, ambitious, and impactful ideas that transcend disciplinary boundaries.

This call invites new ideas from our research community – those that might not receive funding from traditional sources, but which show real intellectual or practical promise.

Applicants benefit not only from the funding to deliver their project, but also the support from Cabot Institute staff to communicate and develop their ideas. Crucially, these projects are focussed on creating something new, from new connections across disciplines to new solutions for society.

We do a lot with a little

With £20,000, this year’s Innovation fund has supported young researchers to develop their careers, facilitated new projects amongst award-winning scientists, pump-primed future research proposals, established global networks, and supported real-world impacts.

How to donate

Make a gift to the Cabot Institute for the Environment by emailing Katie McKeogh in our fundraising team stating that you wish the gift to go towards the Cabot Institute.
