UKRI launches £20 million interdisciplinary programme to understand, predict and prevent spread of infectious diseases
- For the seed-funding phase, UK Research and Innovation is looking for innovative ideas and a sense of how different disciplines will work together
- Integration of multidisciplinary insights is essential, rather than work done along parallel disciplinary tracks
- The larger, second phase of funding will be open to teams who did not win funding, or even apply for it, in the first phase
- Disciplines from across UKRI should play a role in your proposal
UK Research and Innovation has launched the first phase of its £20 million two-phase programme for interdisciplinary research projects to tackle epidemic threats to animals, humans and plants.
