RIO is pleased to launch a new internal fund which is now open for applications on a rolling basis until 1st July 2019. The Partnership Development Fund is dedicated to building partnerships that will ideally result in an ISCF application and thus the activities proposed in the application must focus on one of the ISCF Challenges.
We anticipate that the kind of activities that could be undertaken through this fund will be diverse and want to provide flexibility in how it is used. Applications can focus on the following activities (but not limited to):
- Exploring new industry collaborations such as initial introductory meetings
- Deepening current relationships with industry partners
- Workshops or brainstorming sessions for project development for ISCF funding application
Please note, RIO can support academics to find appropriate partners for a specific project if you do not have any current relevant contacts.
