The “Explorer” fund is for PIs who have not previously been funded through the BBSRC IAA. It supports impact activities which stem from research which is at least 50% within BBSRC remit.

All projects will undertake one or more of the following activities:

  • Market validation
  • Proof-of-concept projects
  • Engagement with users and/or industry partners

The Research Impact team have developed a series of training resources to support project development and evaluation planning, which are a core part of the application.

This funding stream is for projects up to £12k and with a spend deadline of 31st March 2025.

Projects must be focussed on impact, not research or dissemination
