Safeguarding future generations requires an ability to anticipate, adapt and respond to changes, natural or man-made, short or long-term, local or global. UK prosperity depends on the smooth and sustainable functioning of complex infrastructures: transport; communications networks; water, energy and waste utilities. The mathematical and physical sciences, computing and engineering are fundamental to the new thinking and innovation needed to build a truly resilient nation and to increase UK competitiveness. Moreover, EPS contributes to the resilience of developing countries through, for example, robust, low-cost infrastructure.
Example priority areas for strategic programmes:
- Energy security and efficiency
