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.

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

Final Report: Successful Applicants are required to complete and submit a final report that highlights the key successes and the outcomes of their research activity funded by the Heilbronn Focused Research Scheme. Please complete and submit your final report using this form
