Endeavour Grants


In order to support the development of new research proposals and to build effective consortia, the Network supported a number of small projects to pump-prime research development activities.

Endeavour funding was highly flexible and able to support projects (with up to £3K, or £5K in exceptional circumstances) which demonstrated they met the Network’s overall objectives.  Additional funding was made available in exceptional cases where projects demonstrated value for money.

Potential uses of Endeavour Funding included:

  • Hosting World leading academics to give lectures, seminars or presentations aimed at bringing cutting edge research to Wales (The Network will generally not provide funding towards a large conference)
  • Holding ‘sand pit’ or similar events aimed at disseminating funding opportunities and building consortia in advance of major funding calls
  • Other Research Development activities consistent with the Network’s overall objectives
  • Funding towards grant writing workshops (for existing Network grant holders only)

This fund is now closed.
