Transferring Innovation Fund

This fund is currently closed for applications – we hope to be able to offer funding again soon

Do you have a good idea for an innovation in student education? Would you like share it more widely with colleagues at the University? Have you seen something innovative in education at Leeds that you would like to adapt to your own context?

The Transferring Innovation Fund provides £500 to transfer an innovation, or example of, effective practice from one school, faculty or service to another.

The money should be spent by the ‘sharer’ and ‘adopter’ on, for example, equipment, consumables, catering, travel, student interns, or research assistant time.

These are collaborative projects and the partners should not be from the same school or service.

Projects that include a contribution from the student body in an advisory or partnership role are particularly welcome.

Conditions of funding

  • All university staff are eligible to apply
  • The ‘sharer’ and ‘adopter’ of the innovation or practice must be from different schools/services
  • A brief report outlining the success of the transfer should be submitted within one year of the grant being awarded (a template will be provided).
