Applying for funding - and our LinkedIn ideas space

At Lloyd’s Register Foundation our approach to grant making is that we direct most of our funding. This means that we search for and select the most appropriate partner and route to impact, in consultation with our community and based on evidence and insight of what the challenges are, where our focus should be, and what are the most effective solutions.
 
We know that we must also retain the flexibility to fund unexpected and new ideas that help to fulfil our mission. If you have an idea you would like to put to us, we invite you to join our LinkedIn ideas group. If, after discussion, we think it is an area we’d like to explore further, we may invite you to apply. Join the group now to get involved in the conversation.
 
We continue to invite applications through specific open, competitive calls and our small grants scheme, below.

Call for applications - Safety of digital and data driven systems: Capability mapping

Lloyd’s Register Foundation is looking to commission, via a grant, an evidence-based map of the capabilities for managing the safety of digital and data driven systems. The research will explore the following aspects of the safety of digital & data driven systems:

  1. What are the current capabilities for managing the safety of digital and data driven systems in different geographical, technical and industrial domains
  2. What gaps are there in the capability and management of the safety of digital and data driven systems
  3. What global and/or regional and/or sector efforts are there which take a holistic view across domains to generate coordinated activity
  4. Are these approaches successful in mitigating future risks and hazards as industrial systems become increasingly interconnected
  5. Are there coordinated activities bringing safety and security expertise together to tackle future risks

Call for applications - Physical infrastructure: Management and maintenance for safety

Lloyd’s Register Foundation is looking to commission, via a grant, an evidence-based report on the maintenance of infrastructure to enable a safe outcome for society.

Interviews with leading experts has highlighted the need to focus on improving understanding of maintenance practice for infrastructure.

In addition to this we are interested in understanding what evidence underpins these approaches and provides assurances that their use will be effective in practice.

Therefore, this work will be guided by the following four high level questions:

1. What is the state of good practice for the management and maintenance of infrastructure to enable a safe outcome for society?
2. What does future safety practice look like for the management and maintenance of infrastructure?
3. What gaps are there in the provision of safe infrastructure for society and what opportunities are there to apply existing techniques from within and external to the sector?
4. What evidence is there for the effectiveness of existing and future practice for the management and maintenance of infrastructure?

The deadline for submitting an application form is 23:59 (GMT) on 21 May 2021.

The total value of funding for this call is £100,000.
