Nuffield Foundation – Open Door Grant Programme
The Nuffield Foundation’s Open Door Grant programme offers funding to projects of exceptional merit which do not fall under one of the areas of special interest (but which are based on the idea of the advancement of social well-being), or which span more than one area of interest, as listed by the Nuffield Foundation.
Grants are mainly for research but are also made for practical developments or innovation.
Projects should meet the following criteria:
Aim to have an impact beyond its immediate beneficiaries and should be more than local or regional interest.
Preference is given to projects that will have outcomes which will be of interest and use to policy makers.
Include follow-up plans to assess the success of the project and whether the desired impacts were achieved.
