Our expectations

If you gain an Award from OpenBright, we have some key expectations.

Academic Outcome

We expect the projects we fund to lead to an outcome like a report, dissertation, or thesis. But we realise there may be other relevant outcomes such as artefacts, applications, demonstrations and prototypes.


We ask all awardees to complete a short questionnaire, telling us about the results and outputs of the funded work.

Visits and Check-Ins

We may visit students in their university to find out more about their work and progress.

Help with Publicity

Awardees may also be asked to take part in publicity for OpenBright including engaging with us on social media.

Any questions?

Please see our FAQs first, or contact your university in the first instance. If you still have a question, you can get in touch with us by email or fill in the online contact form
