Grants may be awarded in six categories of activity:
• Education and Training
• Research and Development
• Promotion and Publicity
• Capital and Equipment
• Production and Marketing
• Environment and Wildlife
These categories are not necessarily exclusive.
The aim is to identify important industry issues, which the Trust may support by grant funding.
The Trust is not obliged to fund any application, or to give reasons for declining to do so.
Grants are awarded on the condition that all results and reports produced from the funded work must be freely available to the public, unless specifically agreed by the Trust in writing.
