The Heritage Seed Fund is a new internal grant scheme to support research, knowledge exchange and public engagement with research projects with UK and/or international heritage organisations. The objectives for this fund are to:
Develop new, and consolidate existing, research collaborations with the heritage sector.
Provide a ladder of engagement, enabling researchers to trial ideas and develop collaborative projects which may be continued after the end of initial seed funding.
Support agenda-setting interdisciplinary critical debate and discussion of heritage.
There are two levels of funding available with closing dates in Hilary Term 2019 and Trinity Term 2019:
Workshops: Up to £1000 per application to support researchers who would like to develop a collaborative relationship with partner(s) in the UK and/or international heritage sector.
Projects: Up to £3000 per application to enable researchers to develop and deliver projects. These projects can be stand alone, or used as proof-of-concept for larger-scale funding applications.
There is an additional fund to support Conversations (up to £200 per application) which is available to enable researchers to travel for exploratory meetings with potential partners in the UK and/or international heritage sector. This fund can also support travel from external partners to Oxford. This is available through submission of a Case for Support form to: email@example.com.
The total amount of funding available to support projects is £15,000.
