SFI Frontiers for the Future Programme is now open for applications from researchers.

The SFI Frontiers for the Future Programme provides opportunities for independent investigators to conduct highly innovative, collaborative research with the potential to deliver impact, whilst also providing opportunities for high-risk, high-reward research projects.

The programme comprises two streams: Projects and Awards

  • Projects provides funding for high-risk, high-reward research that facilitates highly innovative and novel approaches to research.
  • Awards provides larger scale funding for innovative, collaborative and excellent research programmes that have the potential to deliver economic and societal impact.

The programme design is driven by feedback from the research community (SFI strategy workshops and SFI Researcher Survey) seeking funding for individual-led research and access to shorter-term project funding.

This programme provides opportunities to address gender imbalance and to provide support for Emerging Investigators that may be returning to research after a period of leave.
