The objectives of this scheme are to:

  • promote collaboration across disciplines, with a particular emphasis on the boundary between science, engineering and the social sciences and humanities.
  • support outstanding interdisciplinary research which is unlikely to be supported through conventional funding programmes.
  • support researchers with an outstanding track record, in developing their research in a new direction through collaboration with partners from other disciplines.
  • enable outstanding researchers to focus on advancing their innovative research through seed funding.


Applications must be within the remit of more than one of the Academies. Applications that span the remit of The British Academy and The Royal Academy of Engineering are encouraged.

  • The British Academy Remit – In any discipline within the social sciences and humanities – in some cases, creative and professional practice may play a significant role in shaping the methods and/or outcomes of research. In all proposals, whether practice-led or not, a clear scholarly rationale is required for the choice of research methods, processes and outputs.
  • The Royal Academy of Engineering Remit – Applications are welcome from any engineering discipline. Engineering is defined in its broadest sense, encompassing a wide range of diverse fields, including computer science and materials.
  • The Royal Society Remit – Natural sciences (including agriculture, mathematics, technology, computer science, materials, medical, environmental and engineering sciences, but excluding clinical medicine).

You can apply for this scheme if you are:

  • A researcher with a strong track record as an established independent researcher (this can include engineering researchers, humanities and social sciences scholars and scientists).
  • Based at a UK university or not-for-profit research institution for at least the duration of the project.

Applicants will be expected to collaborate with a research partner (co-applicant) from a different discipline to their own, who is based at the same institution or a different university in the UK. All applications must be supported by the applicant’s Head of Department, who will be asked to provide assurance that the researcher will be permitted to use the institution’s facilities during the period of the award and can be released/partially released from teaching duties (if required). Applicants may only submit one application per round.
