COVID Support

ISSF wants to support researchers to enable their research to continue, as unhindered as possible, during these challenging times.


How are we doing this?

Each current grant has been extended by 6 months to cover the time lost from lockdown and re-establishing research projects.  Further no-cost extensions will be considered in extenuating circumstances.

We have redeployed funds to assist and mitigate the effect of Covid-19 on these short-term research projects.

Allowing flexibility on how funds are managed to ensure research can continue and reduce the impact of disruption, e.g. transferring costs between budget headings.

Funds were made available for pump-prime research related to COVID-19 within the discipline areas usually funded by Wellcome.
