Welcome to the Foundation's grant portal

Connecting safety, science and society

We support work which helps us deliver our charitable mission and objectives, through addressing relevant challenges and making a distinctive difference. Find out how we are making an impact on society.


Our new process for grant applications

At Lloyd’s Register Foundation we direct most of our grant funding but recognise that we must retain the flexibility to fund unexpected and new ideas that help to fulfil our mission.

Therefore, we have removed the option to submit full proposals (except, from time to time, in response to calls in specific subject areas) and have introduced an outline proposal screening process for spotting the truly amazing ideas that surpass our existing plans.

All of our decisions are made collectively and not by one individual, and it is up to the applicant to convince us, in publicly understandable language within the form, of the significance of the work for the Foundation.

Once you've registered, at 'Select a scheme to start an application', select Outline proposal.

If an application passes the outline proposal stage, we invest our time in helping build full proposals that have the greatest chance of success. In this way we focus our resources on those proposals that we feel are best suited to the Foundation’s unique credentials and lead to the greatest possible impact.

Call for applications - Safety challenges at sea data and evidence

This specific scheme is open for direct applications until 9 March 2020.

Lloyd’s Register Foundation is looking to commission, via a grant to an organisation, a rapid assessment of existing data and evidence relating to the most common causes of incidents resulting in injuries and/or fatalities at sea in the occupational settings of the maritime sector, specifically:

  1. Identification and review of published literature:
  2. Identification and analysis of data sources
  3. Data analysis

The output will be publication-ready text for a public-facing report.

Interested organisations are asked to respond to the brief below with a proposal. The deadline for the project’s completion is 12 June 2020. The deadline for applications is 9 March 2020.
