Seven USF grants awarded for research into pandemics and cities

Blog Grants Awarded 3rd March 2022

The USF is excited to announce the outcome of a new seed-funding award for research into pandemics and cities. The Pandemics and Cities research funding scheme ran during late 2021, and aimed to provide four awards of up to GBP 25,000 towards partnered urban research on Covid-19 and other infectious diseases. The scheme was very competitive, with over ninety applications received, and as a result the USF was pleased to approve an increased budget for the scheme. This permitted a total of seven projects to be funded, with teams, partner organisations, and research programmes based all around the world.

The seven successful projects are as follows (links below to expanded profiles on the USF website):
