They are awarded to undertake a defined piece of work by the academic partner for the industrial partner. Awards up to £20K are awarded to the academic at 80% FEC. The amount requested from the Network must be matched at least at 80% FEC by the industrial partner. Industrial match funding must be at least 50% in cash and the remainder can be in kind.
