Oxford-Princeton Research Partnership
Call for proposals for funding, September 2011
2. Establish a foundation for future collaboration;
3. Emphasize new connections and collaborations and build the basis for new research projects (rather than fund already established research partnerships or continue projects funded under this program);
4. Show how the collaboration might be sustained beyond the term of the seed-funding, including through faculty and department commitment and/or the likelihood of leveraging this funding to receive external support (in the forms of grants and awards);
5. Are led by early career researchers or involve opportunities for postdocs and early stage academic and graduate students;
6. Provide a budget that is reasonable and appropriate to the scope and duration of the project.
Grants are intended to facilitate joint planning sessions, conferences, and exchanges rather than for the conduct of research itself. Each university will provide its own lead investigator with funds that can be spent over the course of the grant period on travel, accommodations, workshops, facilities use and other expenses related to meetings or the preparation of external funding proposals, as specified at the time of the proposal.
