Catalyst Fund

The fund commits up to £30 million in annual funding. This money aims to drive innovation in the HE sector, enhance excellence and efficiency in HE, and support innovative solutions.

Funded projects will normally be collaborative, bringing together support from other partners including business, universities and colleges, and other public agencies.

There is normally no deadline for submitting proposals. We consider proposals at any time, and have an ongoing application and approval process. Potential bidders should read all guidance before applying.

On occasion we also announce calls for proposals in response to specific policy priorities. 

Who can apply

All higher education institutions (HEIs) can apply directly to the fund.

Further education colleges (FECs) can apply to support projects focused specifically on activities related to the provision of prescribed courses of HE.

Under current legislation we are unable to fund alternative providers of HE so these providers are not eligible to apply.

To submit a proposal, institutions should review all guidance and contact their HEFCE institutional team in the first instance.
