Top tips

  • Catalyst awards are not only for highly technological innovations with a clearly defined route to market
  • You should be focused on impact beyond just academic impact
  • Building links with charities and other organisations is a good way to do that
  • The application is straightforward, as you would expect for a one-year grant
