The Liverpool Centre for Mathematics in Healthcare acts as a focal point for activity at the Mathematics–Healthcare Technologies interface. This supports both communities as well as end users of research  (e.g. clinicians and industrialists). More than 10% of the Centre budget is allocated for networking activities which will provide a supportive environment for developing novel mathematics which can be translated to biological and medical applications. We are keen to develop new collaborations, and welcome enquiries concerning potential new projects.
Liverpool Centre for Mathematics in Healthcare Pump Priming Funding
We can provide small grants (up to £5K) to fund feasibility studies and to support opportunities to engage end-users. To apply for one of these small grants please complete your proposal on the LCMH Pump Priming Application Form (below) using a maximum of 2 A4 sides and e-mail to: no later than the 1st December 2017.

Proposals should be a case study for support which addresses the following points:

  • Rationale for the event or visit. Briefly explain the background and novelty of the proposed activity.
  • Alignment with LCMH objectives. State clearly both the mathematical and healthcare challenges and why this activity should be funded by LCMH.
  • New collaborations. Explain how the activity will promote new collaborations, or extend existing collaborations Funding available or requested from other sources.
  • Details. Specify dates of events (even if these are tentative) and identify speakers or visitors where possible.
  • Costings. Justify the expected costs (up to £5k)

N.B. You may be asked to revise your application in order for funding to be approved.
