Recognising that the research funding landscape is busy and complex we have added an Investment Timeline to our website to help with your forward planning for grant applications.
£25 million funding awarded to leading disease prevention projects
In its first ever funding round, the UK Prevention Research Partnership (UKPRP) is investing £25 million into understanding and influencing the social, economic and environmental factors that affect our health.
End Use Energy Demand Technology Call 2
The UK Research and Innovation Energy Programme, via EPSRC and ESRC, have now funded the Centre for Research in Energy Demand Solutions (CREDS) as part of the second phase of strategy to support the broad community of researchers and innovators in energy demand in the UK. EPSRC is looking to fund additional research proposals concerning technologies to enable end use energy demand.
UK Japan Civil Nuclear Research Programme - Phase 6
EPSRC, in collaboration with the Japanese Ministry of Education, Sport, Culture and Technology (MEXT) and the Nuclear Safety Research Association (NSRA), seek collaborative research applications with UK and Japan-based principal investigators in the removal of fuel debris and environmental safety around reactor core decommissioning of the TEPCO Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Plant (NPP), and Sellafield's decommissioning challenges. EPSRC will fund the UK-based research and MEXT will fund the Japan-based research components. This call represents the sixth phase of the UK-Japan Civil Nuclear Research Programme and it is for small projects of approximately 30 months duration, with a fixed end date of 30 April 2022.
UK High Field Solid-State NMR National Research Facility
Following the 2018 Statement of Need process, the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC) in association with the Biotechnology and Biological Sciences Research Council (BBSRC), would like to support a UK High-Field Solid-State NMR National Research Facility that provides access to a range of cutting edge instruments, expertise and techniques in high-field solid-state NMR to support excellent research spanning disciplinary boundaries.
