Page 1: IMI Research Fellow Support Request

Please submit one application per grant proposal and notify us at once you've submitted.

Requests should be submitted at least FOUR weeks prior to grant submission deadline. 

If requesting an Idea Generation Workshop, requests must be submitted at least NINE weeks prior to deadline.

The value of an IMI support request can be up to approximately 10% of the grant overhead amount coming to Bath, normally up to £30,000.

We realise some of this information will be estimated.

IMI Research Fellows (RFs) can access the following resources when applying for research funding:

  • Work with one of IMI’s Mathematical Innovation Research Associates (MIRAs) to help develop the mathematical aspect of a grant submission, provided they cost in the MIRA’s time into the submission to help deliver this component of the grant.

  • Apply for a financial contribution towards grants submitted (e.g. additional travel or visitor funds, running a workshop, extending the length of a postdoc, purchase of computing equipment etc.), awarded on successful grant capture.

  • Support from IMI administrative staff for research activities, if included in the grant application (e.g. coordinating a workshop or congress).

  • Receive additional strategic support to develop their large grant application(s) or industrial research project(s), e.g. helping with impact, connecting to industry, attracting other resources to proposal submissions.

  • Funded projects will be published on the IMI web pages thereby increasing visibility, impact and growth of successful projects. The IMI will continue to help RFs with successful grant capture to leverage follow-on-funding, impact and other opportunities.
