All MEDEV mini-project funding calls are now closed.

We are pleased to list the Joint miniprojects with Health Sciences & Practice 2010 successful applicants.

The MEDEV miniproject scheme has run since 2001, with over 70 projects supported/funded to date (see past funded projects for reports, etc.). In 2009 we linked up with the Health Sciences and Practice Subject Centre (HSaP) to offer some joined up aspects to our call.

Bidders could apply for up to £5,000 (or exceptionally £10,000 for a collaboration) per project. See past funded projects for an illustration of successful applications. There was a total pot of approximately £25,000 available.

Please note that all project proposals are bought to the attention of nominated primary contacts (NPCs).

Call for quotations for external evaluation of change in the sector.

The evaluation work issued under the call for expressions of interest has been commissioned and will be completed Oct 2011. Thank you to everyone who participated in the research.
