The Language Sciences Incubator Fund is a small projects fund to foster innovative and interdisciplinary research in the language sciences. 

The Incubator Fund was established by Cambridge Language Sciences with additional funding from the Isaac Newton Trust, Cambridge University Press & Assessment and the School of Technology, and is a small grants fund designed to foster innovative interdisciplinary research in the language sciences. 

As well as the opportunity to develop new ideas, collaborations and approaches, Incubator Fund projects can provide proof of concept or evidence of collaboration for larger grant applications. Other positive outcomes include knowledge exchange studentships, publications, fellowships and further career opportunities for researchers involved.

Since the Incubator Fund was established in 2016, over £110,000 of seed funding has been awarded across 41 projects.
