AXA Research Fund 2012 [PDF]
As each University can only submit one application to this scheme, Northumbria will be running an internal competition to select the bid and PI to go forward. We must submit the name of the selected PI to AXA by 5 April, and that person must submit a full application by 10 May.
All potential applicants should send a 2-page CV and an outline document detailing in no more than 2 paragraphs the nature of the research and how it fits with AXA’s priorities to Samantha King (Research Funding Development Manager) by midday on 2nd April.
The final decision will be made by Prof. Peter Golding, PVC Research, with advice from Research and Business Services. Further support will then be given to the chosen applicant to develop and cost their application.
