In order to support the development and implementation of co-designed research on nexus-related topics, the Nexus Network is offering grants each to enable researchers to build meaningful inter-disciplinary research collaboration networks, and to establish connections with civil society, policy and business communities in order to engage them as knowledge partners in the co-design of research proposals on nexus topics.
The Nexus Network research partnership programme is a two-phase process:
In the first phase, which launches on 27 November 2014, the Nexus Network is offering five networking grants of up to £20,000 each to enable researchers to build meaningful inter-disciplinary research collaboration networks, and to establish connections with relevant stakeholders (from civil society, policy and business communities) in order to engage them as knowledge partners in the co-design of research proposals on nexus topics.
In the second phase (launching in November 2015), the Nexus Network will offer two grants of up to £150,000 each for inter- and trans-disciplinary research projects on nexus themes. While it is hoped that recipients of the initial networking grants will apply to this subsequent round, this will be an open call and will not be limited only to recipients of the networking grants. Further details about the process for applying for funding in the second phase will be made available in 2015.
