The Gas Safety Trust, UK, is looking to fund smaller, short-term, innovative and experimental projects based on unproven ideas that have potential to contribute to overall understanding of carbon monoxide and how it impacts the environment and peoples’ lives. This is the first time that the Trust is offering funding for small grants up to the value of £10,000. 

Current research involves the Trust working with a range of medical and academic personnel from various areas including victims of CO poisoning, Accident and Emergency services, coroners, and low-income households. It is seeking applications from companies that have a specific need to carry out research into the effects of CO, perhaps with the end user or the supply chain.

Applications are invited from researchers, academics and relevant industry partners which will contribute to the prevention and better understanding of carbon monoxide (CO) poisoning. All disciplines are welcome.

Projects which show promise during this grant phase will be invited to apply to the GST Main Grants call for further funding to continue their work.  Applications should be submitted by 1 May 2020. To apply, contact GST Trustee, Adrian McConnell.
