***Main grant applications programme temporarily closed ***

We are launching a new strategy at our international conference in London on 9 and 10 October 2019.  Therefore, we are currently not accepting full grant applications under our main programme.

The following are still open for applications:

Using Heritage & Education Centre digital collections: small research grants of up to £15,000 to make use of Lloyd’s Register Foundation’s Heritage & Education Centre digital resources. Find out more here

Outline proposal: you can submit this short form if you think that you have a creative idea, within our mission, that could help us meet our seven new challenges:

  • Safety at sea
  • Safety of food
  • Safety of physical infrastructure
  • Safety of digital and data driven systems
  • Safety for a sustainable future
  • Closing the gap between public perception and real-world risk
  • Improving access to engineering skills

If we are interested in finding out more about your proposal we would invite you to submit a full application, without any commitment to funding at that point.
