QCBS seed grants are intended to catalyze new research initiatives by providing funding for researchers to design or further develop research projects and seek larger funding from other sources. Emphasis is given to projects across research themes within axes or between two research axes. Preferably, seed grant proposals involve collaboration between researchers from at least two different QCBS themes.
Desirable outcomes Seed grant funding may be used to facilitate new funding opportunities in several ways. Some examples include:
- Obtain preliminary data that demonstrates the feasibility or rationale of a larger grant proposal.
- Writing new publications that demonstrate to granting agencies the functionality of a newly formed team of researchers.
- Organizing team meetings to develop larger grant proposals.
