Focused Research Grants (FRG)

This scheme is now closed to applications until November 2023

The Heilbronn Institute for Mathematical Research annually offers a number of grants of up to £8 K to fund focused research groups to work on adventurous and challenging mathematical problems, or to discuss important new developments in mathematics.

These grants will support travel and local expenses for groups to come together to focus intensively on a problem or to discuss a significant new development in mathematics. We expect these groups to be normally 8 or fewer people.  Groups are encouraged to include international participants but should also involve a substantial UK-based component.

Proposals from these areas of research, interpreted broadly, will be given priority: Pure Mathematics, Probability and Statistics, and Quantum Information.

Applicants are invited to explain in brief the mathematical background and timeliness of their proposal. They should include a list of proposed membership (including their degrees of commitment to the activity). Activities conducive of active research and discussion will be favoured over those that resemble conferences.

How to Apply: Further information on how to apply is available here.

Closing date: 26 January 2023
Applications should be sent to the Heilbronn Manager at
