The Durham Emergence Project ran a fellowship programme, supported by a generous grant from the John Templeton Foundation. Proposals were invited from either research teams or single researchers for scientific and philosophical research into the conceptual foundations and empirical possibility of strong emergence. Interdisciplinary proposals involving researchers from both philosophy and the sciences were particularly encouraged, as were proposals from early-career researchers.
Applications were invited for up to £50,000, for research projects lasting up to a year.
