The small grants scheme is aimed to promote research into key areas of relevance to UKEMS. The awards are primarily aimed to facilitate junior investigators establishing their careers. We will also consider awards to establish pilot/feasibility studies for preliminary data, with a view to obtaining further grant funding.
