The October call for SIP placements received an excellent response, with a high level of interest from most of the Schools. The University had the budget to support 23 Classic and 9 Reverse projects. A total number of 37 applications were submitted, of which 33 were for Classic projects. The panel approved 23 Classic projects, with priority given to staff that are new to SIP. All 4 Reverse applications were approved, and 3 of the Classic applications are being converted into Reverse SIP projects. 

The SIP programme continues to be a great success in the University, both in terms of engaging staff that are new to Enterprise activity, and in developing longer term partnerships. So far this year, Cardiff Met are the only institution to allocate their quota of projects. It is therefore highly likely that the University will be given additional placements, with a call likely early in 2013.
