The Wellcome Trust invites preliminary applications for its hub award. This brings researchers and creative professionals together at Wellcome Collection to work as a collaborative residency. The trust encourages applications from groups to produce new insights, methodologies and interventions that will either build on existing knowledge or focus on a new field of research. 

Groups of four to six people have been funded in the past. They should bring together people from different professional backgrounds such as health, the arts and academia.

The award includes the use of space within the hub and funding of up to £1 million over a period of two years. Funding may be used to cover salary costs and project expenses such as equipment, materials, travel, events and public engagement activities.

Key Dates:

  • The Hub Award open day  30 April 2019, 15:00 to 17:00 BST
  • Preliminary applications and short video deadline 13 June 2019, 17:00 BST
  • Shortlisting July 2019
  • Full applications deadline February 2020
  • Interviews and decision March 2020
  • Residency starts Autumn 2020

Your proposed project should challenge how people think and feel about health, and fit with Wellcome's purpose.
