The convening of the research funding action committee is to identify priority research areas and academics who would like to work together and to write funding applications (or delegating to other members of the network) in support of research projects. Any member of the network who is interested in creating relevant research opportunities can join the committee. The committee’s primary objective is to secure initial external funding within three years. In the longer term funding opportunities for an Oxford centre for consciousness studies will be sought.

The committee will meet twice per year.
