Lloyd’s Register Foundation Small Grants Scheme Opens for 2023

Global funding opportunity available to fund small projects focused on LRF’s charitable mission, with a particular focus on safety relating to design and construction.

The Lloyd’s Register Foundation (LRF) was established in 2012 through the profits of the Lloyd’s Register Group Ltd. The Foundation aims to support engineering-related research, training and education that makes a real difference in improving the safety of the critical infrastructure modern society relies upon.

The LRF Small Grants Scheme provides funding for small projects relating to the charitable mission of Lloyd’s Register Foundation. Support is available for projects with a potential to lead to future collaborations, clear knowledge exchange or to create/accelerate impact. Funding is specifically available to:

  1. Initiate, build or consolidate partnerships with an array of organisations in relevant sectors eg policy, practitioner, industrial, commercial and community.
  2. Test out ideas through pilot studies, proof of concept projects or activities targeting policy, business and the third sector.

Grants are available to organisations (which may defer grants to individual researchers or groups), including higher education institutions and research organisations. Grants can be made to support research globally.

Funding of up to £10,000 is available. Projects should last no longer than 12 months.

Applications for the first 2023 round should be submitted by the 15 May 2023 (23:59) deadline.
