The successful projects will create a host of opportunities and benefits: * the Enterprise Partners gain significantly as the project is focused around their needs * academics benefit through implementing arts and humanities research expertise in a non-academic environment * the employee gains through working on an important and innovative project, earning a market-rate salary that reflects this. Who Can Apply: Applications for funding should be submitted by the university involved in the project. If you are based within a university or potential Enterprise partner and are interested in the Knowledge Catalyst scheme, you should first read the scheme guidance, which will give you a detailed overview of the scheme and advise
