First Call: Catalyst Grants

Find out more about the Catalyst Projects funded under the first call.

We launched a first call for Catalyst Grants on 10 December 2015. A total of 173 Expressions of Interest (EOIs) for Catalyst Grants were submitted and 12 proposals were successful.

These Catalyst Grants of between £10,000 and £50,000 each are designed to explore novel approaches to water security and poverty research and policy that complement the core research conducted by the REACH programme.

The Catalyst Grants will promote the co-production of effective tools and technologies relevant for and adopted by policy makers, practitioners, civil society organisations and enterprise.

There will be at least one further round of Catalyst Grants issued during the programme. Further calls may be issued subject to available funding.
