Consortium Building Meeting Fund

Funds are available to support Consortium Building Meetings, specifically to allow Network members to meet in person for the purposes of developing a funding application to a third party (i.e. not FoodWasteNet funding streams). The meeting’s format, location, duration and number of attendees will be decided upon by the participants.

From 17 August 2017 – December 2017 FoodWasteNet will pay up to £2,000 inclusive of VAT towards the cost of holding the consortium building meeting, including expenses such as:

  • participant travel (if public transport is used, it should be standard class)
  • venue hire
  • accommodation
  • catering.

Staff time and indirect costs may not be claimed. Funds will be paid at 100%.

Applying for Network support for a consortium building meeting

The lead applicant and facilitator must complete and submit an application for funding on behalf of all individuals who will be attending the proposed meeting. The lead applicant must be a FoodWasteNetwork member (Join here) and be eligible to receive BBSRC funding. All meeting participants must also be FoodWasteNet members. There is an expectation that industrial partners will be included in the meeting.

Applications will be considered on an ad hoc basis until the end of 2017.
