The second phase of LGI will see a significant expansion of our funding program. With an annual budget of nearly 150,000 euros, we will introduce larger 'Breed' grants, post-docs and cross-faculty teaching development grants in addition to a slightly expanded program of seed grants. There will be two calls for applications each year. As we seek to support only the most competitive proposals, grants may not be awarded for all categories in each round. The next application deadline is 15th November 2014 for grants beginning in January 2015.
