ISSF

Institutional Strategic Support Fund from the Wellcome Trust

The University of Dundee has been awarded a £3.75 million Institutional Strategic Support Fund (ISSF) over the next 5 years from the Wellcome Trust.  This follows £5 million of previous funding which has support many strategic activities since October 2011. The ISSF provides UK-based universities flexible funding, which they are required to match, to invest in areas of strategic importance and thereby supports a diverse range of initiatives within the Wellcome Trust remit. The Dundee ISSF award underpins a portfolio of activities that support the recruitment and career development of researchers, enable various equality and diversity initiatives, enhance our research infrastructure, and support interdisciplinary research and public engagement.
