Scientific Council Collaboration Fund

The Scientific Council Collaboration Fund (SCCF) is an annual call that is run in association with the UKCCSRC Programme Conference. There are three awards of £10k available at each Programme Conference. These are open to applicants from the Scientific Council members that attend the conference to facilitate collaboration activities. The applications are peer reviewed by the Scientific Council along with members of the UKCCSRC Board and IAP. To date there have been three successful rounds of the SCCF and details of these are below.

2019

Applications for the 2019 SCCF are now closed.

In September 2019, the UKCCSRC closed its latest (2019) SCCF call. After a peer-reviewed process by the UKCCSRC Board and Independent Advisory Panel, the successful applications were determined.
