Building Research Capacity and Networks

The central aim of the Building Research Capacity and Networks grants is to provide funding for the inception and development of innovative collaborations and new priority research areas aligned with the aims of BAICE.


The purpose of Seedcorn Fund is to provide funding for pilot research projects and scoping work. This may be achieved through a combination of activities including literature review, mapping exercises, analysis of secondary data sources, travel and subsistence to meet domestic and international partners.
