NERC Follow-on Fund Pathfinder
Animal disease, health and welfare.
A Pathfinder award is a compulsory precursor to a Follow-on Fund application. The awards are available to carry out work to develop a greater understanding of the commercial aspects and possibilities of research, and hence a more robust, better informed application for a full Follow-on Fund grant.
