New Fund to Upgrade Facilities for Creative and Cultural Research

Deadline: 27/09/22

This funding opportunity focuses on (but is not restricted to) developing the research and development capability of smaller specialist institutions (SSIs) such as GuildHE members to enhance their capacity to contribute to the UK’s thriving creative and cultural economy.

Apply for funding to develop your organisation’s creative research capability (CResCa).

Grants can be used to renew, repurpose and upgrade research facilities and equipment.

You must be at a UK-based organisation eligible for UK Research and Innovation funding. Standard Arts and Humanities Research Council eligibility rules apply. We encourage applications from smaller specialist institutions.

There are three funding strands:

  • replacement and upgrade of equipment, up to £1 million
  • refurbishment of small to medium sized facilities, up to £3 million
  • major renovations and repurposing, up to £10 million.

Costs are reimbursed at 100% of the full economic cost. Spending deadlines apply.
