The Higher Education Entrepreneurship Group (HEEG) Small Projects Fund provides funding of up to £8,500 per project to enable staff in HEEG member universities (including Kingston and other universities in the South East region) to carry out small research or teaching and learning projects relevant to the aims and objectives of HEEG.
Projects should support or train educators and staff within the HEEG member universities in the South East of England in order to aid their work in educating and up-skilling students for and about entrepreneurship. It is intended that the fund should have an inclusive approach and projects should demonstrate regional value which can be shared and disseminated amongst universities in the SEEDA region.
An example of a previous project is Arts Enterprise Mentoring Network Development, a Kingston project that addressed the gap in provision for creative industry start-ups by establishing a training and mentoring programme.
The fund will contribute up to 75% of the total costs for each project (to a maximum of £8,500 per project), the applicant's university must be able to supply match funding of at least 25%.
The deadline for applications was Friday November 13 2009.
