This is your opportunity to put forward concepts for which BU will be known in the years to come. Concepts that are prioritised for development by the SIA Steering Groups, will benefit from tailored institutional support to turn your idea into a reality. This could include identification of match-funding, support from estates, personalised funding development support and much more – you tell us what you need to make a transformative idea a reality.
Game-changing research concepts are welcomed from all of our academic community across all career stages.
To learn more about the SIAs, the open call and to discuss what you could do, please find further details on the staff intranet.
You can also come along to one of our short briefing sessions to ask any questions that you like and to learn more:
