Wellcome ISSF: interdepartmental strategic initiatives

This will be the last round of funding allocation from the current Wellcome block grant. Future rounds will be dependent on receiving further funding from Wellcome, so the ISSF Committee particularly encourage researchers to apply to this round. 

The Oxford-Wellcome ISSF Interdepartmental Strategic Initiative stream will support strategic initiatives by supporting:

  • equipment, research assets or staff within shared facilities where there is evidence of strategic need
  • establishment of cross-cutting themes through activities such as research facilitation, symposia or conferences in order to encourage collaboration in new areas

The deadline for applications is noon on Wednesday 14 October 2020.
