UKSG is delighted to announce the launch of its 2023 Innovation Awards, offering financial support to professionals and organisations seeking to develop new ideas and proposals for the wider benefit of the information community.

We welcome applications that embody our values around learning and sharing, openness and inclusion and align to one or more of the four themes of our strategic vision: include, connect, innovate and deliver.

These themes reflect UKSG's special role as a meeting point for the entire scholarly communications community.  You can read about our vision and strategy here: https://www.uksg.org/about

Applications for UKSG funding of between £1,000 and £5,000 are welcomed from any UKSG members, whether individuals (either members or within a members organisation) or organisations in any location, and may be used to help fund events, projects or activities or other related costs that will be considered on a case-by-case basis.

The projects must clearly meet our mission.   Each application will be examined by a subset of the Trustees, and up to five grants will be allocated in 2023.

You can read about previous grantees here.  If you have previously received a grant, you can apply again.

Reporting back
We would expect monthly reports for the duration of the project. We are committed to sharing the results of activity we fund with the community and successful applicants would be expected to share the outcomes of their work via an article in UKSG Insights, an editorial in UKSG eNews or by contributing to one of our events.
Paying the grant
Depending on the size of the grant and the proposed project, this can be paid in instalments or up front.  At the end of the reporting period, we will need to see a statement of expenditure (this would be based on your budget).
