Grants to support mathematicians in the UK, Isle of Man or Channel Islands taking time away from their usual environment in order to focus on restarting research activity that has been disrupted by the coronavirus/COVID-19 pandemic.
The London Mathematical Society (LMS) has established the Research Reboot Scheme for 2021 to support mathematicians restarting their research activity after disruption caused by the coronavirus/COVID-19 pandemic. The scheme offers funding to support researchers taking time away from their usual environment and activities in order to focus on research.
Funding will cover accommodation, travel, subsistence and caring costs for short visits (between two days and one week) to allow time away to focus on ‘rebooting’ research. The grant may also cover two short visits in one application, providing each is no less than two days.
Priority will be given to applicants who had increased caring responsibilities, such as home-schooling, during the pandemic, and those with additional professional demands, such as teaching and administration.
The first phase of the Research Reboot Scheme will run from late June to September 2021, assuming that safe travel will be permitted.
