NERC Consortium Grants
(8 March 2006)
The Natural Environment Research Council offers consortium grants to support collaborative research into specific issues that cannot be addressed through other funding modes. A minimum of three eligible institutions are required to constitute a consortium. Consortium grants will provide funding for up to five years with costs ranging, as required by the research, from modest sums up to an overall limit of £3.5 million. This limit is on the total cost (100 per cent of full economic costs, including any tied studentships and major facility costs). Tied studentships should be assumed to cost £60,000 for a three year studentship.
Deadline: 1 July and 1 December, annually
