NewMind was awarded further funds by the EPSRC in June 2016 to continue developing and running the network until November 2019.
As part of this funding, NewMind developed plans to award grants to a number of Stage 1 (up to £15k) and Stage 2 (up to £45k) Feasibility Study projects.
The mechanism for developing proposal ideas was through a series of Sandpit events followed by Dragons' Den Panels to determine successful applicants, with a prerequisite of funding being that applicants must have attended at least one Sandpit event prior to submitting their proposal, and that the proposal be developed at a Sandpit.
Proposals must show strong alignment with the priorities and outcomes contained in the network's Research Roadmap.
The submission form & guidance is available for download here.
Please note that all NewMind Plus Feasibility Study awards have been made and there are no more funds for allocation.
