Institute of Hazard, Risk & Resilience Small Grants Scheme 2017/18

(10 November 2017)

IHRR is offering small grants in the area of hazard, risk and resilience. The aim of the small grants scheme is to promote activities at Durham University that develop research activity, research capacity, impact and/or dissemination in the broad fields of hazard, risk and resilience. Applications should be made using this application form. Please complete all the relevant fields including names, titles, departments/schools and status of applicants, and email addresses for correspondence (identify Principal Investigator). Applications should be emailed to by 5pm on Thursday, 16 November 2017.


The funds can be used to pump-prime new research; organise workshops or meetings; fund attendance at conferences; develop marketing materials; and suchlike. Funding may be used to support the activities (but not maintenance or fees) of research postgraduate students in hazard, risk and resilience, so long as the planned activity supports the development of IHRR.

The maximum normally awarded to any single proposal will be £2000 and partial funding of proposals is a possibility.
