Research & Enterprise Funding

​Recognising the value of universities engaging with issues affecting ​the wider community and working with organisations outside education, the Cardiff Metropolitan University Get Started Fund was launched in February 2015 to help university staff develop and build relationships with external partner organisations. 


Get Started  is a fully-funded programme to develop collaborative partnerships by funding short term placements of university staff into external organisations, to develop the skills and ‘real world’ experience of university staff and to:

  • Gain insights into each other’s organisations

  • Stimulate innovation to develop ideas together

  • Provide a fresh perspective

  • Build partnerships for future collaboration

  • Examine how collaborative partnering with universities can really be beneficial

The next Get Started Funding call is in October 2015.
