Catalysing ideas

The new Director’s Catalyst Fund was launched in 2016 with the support of donations, and aims to support early stage projects and innovation for early career researchers. This is often the key to supporting applications for securing highly competitive external funding.

The fund will support high-quality research projects relevant to LSTM research strategic priorities and will provide pump-priming for new and innovative ideas and projects. The awardees will benefit from mentorship and support from senior academic colleagues, enabling us to nurture LSTM’s research leaders of the future.
