Seed Corn Research Fund
Enabling the exploration of transport, supply chain and logistics issues in the UK and Ireland.
The Seed Corn Fund was set up to provide a small research grant on a ‘seed corn’ basis to enable supply chain, logistics and transport researchers in the UK and Ireland to explore issues of current and academic interest.
By supporting small scale research projects in universities, the grant assists researchers working in emerging research areas in the hope that this will lead to the development of larger scale projects which will be able to attract funding from other commercial and public sources.
With this in mind, it is unlikely that the funding for any one project under this scheme will exceed £7,500.
Guidance on what can be included in the budget can be found here.
Seed Corn Research Fund 2022/23 is now open!
