Call for LEAP small project grants

application 3695107

The Livestock, Environment and People (LEAP) programme, University of Oxford, aims to understand the health, environmental, social and economic effects of meat and dairy consumption to provide evidence and tools for decision makers to promote healthy and sustainable diets. LEAP is supported by the Wellcome Trust’s  Our Planet Our Health Programme and is one of four major interdisciplinary research partnerships in the areas of global food systems and urbanization.

We are keen to encourage collaborative working across these themes and we are pleased to announce the next call for applications for two project grants of up to £10,000 each (although requests for more will be considered on its own merit). Projects will be judged on research quality, value for money, and the degree to which they add new dimensions to the LEAP research portfolio.


Projects must fall within the LEAP remit and be directly relevant to the work of LEAP and the Wellcome Trust’s Our Planet Our Health Programme. Applications will only be accepted from University of Oxford staff, but can include external collaborators within the proposal. We strongly encourage people who are not already funded by LEAP to apply. 

If you have any questions please email the LEAP Project Manager, Kelly Reed, at


It is expected there will be clear outputs within 12 months of gaining the award. Please indicate the planned outputs in your application.
