Funding Call - Industrial Collaboration Awards (ICA)

Funding Call - Industrial Collaboration Awards (ICA)



The primary aim of the Welsh Government in setting up the Sêr Cymru National Research Networks was to increase research funding into Wales through the creation of increased capability stemming from collaborative efforts. Consequently, a core aim of the Sêr Cymru Engineering NRN is the promotion of academia-industry partnerships and collaborations.


About the Call

This funding call is intended to support this through focused projects that bring together university researchers and commercial partners. The NRN will make up to £10k available to fund interactions between university-based researchers and preferably Welsh-based companies.

We advise potential applicants to become familiar with the Sêr Cymru National Research Network in Advanced Engineering and Materials and our core research themes through our website.
