Research Funding Schemes

Goldsmiths-LASALLE Partnership Innovation Fund

The Partnership Innovation Fund (PIF) is an initiative led by Goldsmiths designed to support the growth and development of Goldsmith’s academic partnership with LASALLE College of the Arts.

PIF aims to encourage, facilitate and foster innovative collaboration and cross-partnership working links between colleagues and students from both institutions, support learning and teaching initiatives and interdisciplinary collaborations, and provide opportunities for staff to professionally develop through collaboration and sharing best practice. It focuses on embedding, extending and enhancing the student experience of cohorts at both institutions.

Funds are accessible to all academic and professional services staff members from all departments at Goldsmiths and LASALLE. Applicants can apply for funding of up to £5000. A broad scope of projects that align with the PIF’s aims and outcomes can be considered for funding. The PIF can also be accessed for collaborative research projects across the two institutions.
