Funding

Innovation Fund 

Every year we hold an annual call for applications to our Innovation Fund. This fund is designed to pump prime innovative interdisciplinary research ideas, with a view to developing major future proposals, or to support impact or engagement-focussed activities. Funds of around £30k are available. External organisations may partner on applications led by University of Bristol academics, where the project is a true collaboration between organisations and delivers novel outcomes.

Supporting emerging opportunities

Good ideas or opportunities can arise at any time. We provide small amounts of funding (<£1k) to enable members of the Cabot community to pursue them, supporting a limited number of activities each year. Funding requests must reflect the Cabot Institute’s research focus on protecting our environment and identifying ways of living better with our changing planet. Requests must also meet one or more of the Cabot Institute's objectives to:

  • connect people across disciplines and catalyse new research
  • engage with and influence the public, policy, innovation and industrial strategy
  • develop and enrich international research partnerships and profile
  • inspire and train future leaders
