ISCF Transforming Foundation Industries Hub

The Transforming Foundation Industries ISCF Challenge will be investing up to £4.7m in a Research and Innovation Hub which will be delivered by EPSRC on behalf of UKRI. The aim of this Challenge is to enable the foundation industries (made of six separate sectors: metal, glass, ceramics, paper, cement and chemicals) to work together to address their common challenges of competitiveness and sustainability. The Research and Innovation Hub call is a cross-Council opportunity that aims to fund a new cross-sector and multi-disciplinary research centre for the ‘ISCF Transforming Foundation Industries’ programme that will work to accelerate the development and adoption of new technologies and business models within the Foundation Industries.

Pre-announcement: Healthcare Impact Partnerships 2020

EPSRC will shortly be inviting proposals for Healthcare Impact Partnerships (HIPs) 2020. This is the sixth call since the scheme was introduced in 2013, with the principal aim of progressing previously funded EPSRC research outputs towards impact within a healthcare application. This call invites proposals that are highly collaborative, partnering with both business and clinicians and which primarily utilise research in Engineering, Mathematical Sciences, ICT and Physical Sciences disciplines for advances in Healthcare.
