Research & Scoping Awards 2016

Announcement on Thursday 8 December 2016 at 1400

The Society received a particularly high number of proposals this year, with many excellent and well-designed potential research projects. Following a thorough peer review process, and meeting of the Award Review Panel on November 16th, the Society is delighted to confirm funding of up to £10,000 for each of the following six research proposals:

As the funding available to support research and scoping projects is strictly limited, we would like to thank the many Society members and Scoping Award entrants for the time and care taken in putting together so many fascinating proposals.

We have provided constructive, individual feedback to all entrants whose proposals we were unable to fund, which will hopefully help refine these proposals and potentially find alternative sources of funding.
