Read the latest calls for funding
This award is aimed at those interested in animal genetics, aimed at allowing people to attend meetings and undertake study tours or projects, it can also be used to bring animal geneticists to UK meetings.
Applications should reflect areas of current or future interest that will advance research and education in the application of genetics to livestock production.
Around £1400 is available annually, although a proportion of these monies may be held over to allow more funding to be available in years when the World Congress in Genetics Applied Livestock Production, to fund attendance of that conference.
Alan Robertson was a population geneticist and a major influence in the widespread adoption of artificial insemination of cattle and on estimating genetic effects that influence quantitative traits. Robertson spent most of his working life based at the National Animal Breeding and Genetics Research Organisation in Edinburgh as a member of the Unit of Animal Genetics.
Closing date: 31 October, 2018 (annual award)
In years when the WCGALP is being held (every four years, 2018, 2022, 2026...) an additional application period will be added as notified by the society.

How to Apply:
Contact your local KTP Adviser or Office or call: +44 3003 214357.
A KTP can last between 12 and 36 months depending on the project and the needs of the business. It is part-funded by a grant. The amount businesses need to contribute is different for SMEs and larger companies.
2017/18 close dates for submission are aligned with Innovate UK’s sector and open competitions.
Innovate UK is the UK’s innovation agency, funding and supporting science and technology innovations that will grow the UK economy.
Innovate UK traditionally offers research funding for research collaborations between industry and academia, including PhD CASE studentships, KTPs (Knowledge transfer Partnerships) and latterly through the Agri-Tech Catalyst scheme. Please note that Innovate UK funding schemes are currently being redefined.

National Phenotypic Screening Centre (NPSC) is a collaborative centre of excellence in phenotypic screening applied to human, animal and plant health. Assays run within the consortium are sourced from academia and fully funded through assay development, screening and hit validation.
Currently there are open calls for assay proposals in several different therapy areas.
The Royal Society of Edinburgh Enterprise Fellowships enable promising science and technology researchers to grow into successful entrepreneurs.
Fellowships funded by Scottish Enterprise comprise the bulk of the programme. These awards are designed to encourage and enable the development of a new business based in Scotland around a technological idea developed by the Enterprise Fellow, either individually or with others, and within which the Enterprise Fellow would be expected to play a leading, though not necessarily the leading, role.
PhD and MScR opportunities are available at The Roslin Institute and Royal (Dick) School of Veterinary Studies.
A number of studentships for taught and research postgraduates are offered each year.
