The Hub opens for preliminary applications

Posted on 21 January 2013

A new funding opportunity from the Wellcome Trust

The Hub is intended to provide uniquely rich resources and a stimulating space for researchers and other creative minds to collaborate on a project that will explore medicine and health in historical, social, artistic or cultural contexts. Applications for residency at The Hub are open to groups of three to five researchers and practitioners from the arts, humanities, sciences and social sciences who are interested in developing or accelerating innovative, exciting and ground-breaking ideas or projects related to health. 

Projects are expected to last for two academic years and an allowance of up to £1 million will be made to the successful group. Whether you have a discrete project in mind, whether you're looking to kick-start a brand new idea that might have a life beyond your residency at The Hub, or whether you're already working on something that you would like to develop further, The Hub could be an ideal location to find the time and gather the right team to realise your plans.

For more information, and details of how to apply, please visit

If you wish to consider a project in the chronic diseases and disorders area and are looking for ideas for potential collaborators or wish to apply for funding to hold a 'sand-pit' meeting then please email     

Closing date for preliminary applications is 3 May 2013.
