The pump-priming programme provides support for collaborative research on novel topics that are not yet sufficiently mature to attract mainstream funding. In particular, we are interested in innovative or emerging research themes, and at obtaining substantial advances in a core PASCAL research area. Priority will be given to areas that are genuinely interdisciplinary and involve more than one network site.
