Seedcorn Research Fund

There are increasing opportunities for Durham University academics to use their disciplinary expertise in multidisciplinary contexts with more research funders looking to support work that crosses traditional boundaries, combines several perspectives or methods, solves problems that remain intractable within a single discipline, or even fosters new disciplines. Such work is very rewarding, but requires much more extensive planning and teamwork in its early stages than a "single investigator" project.
