This report contains the outcomes of a workshop run by AHRC, BBSRC, EPSRC, ESRC, NERC, and Innovate UK which was held on 21 July 2016 to scope the potential for a cross-council activity around the theme of the Circular Economy.
Research outputs 2016 provides an overview of data gathered by EPSRC through researchfish® (an online web-based system for reporting UK research outcomes), supplemented with data and information from other sources.
This issue includes an update on this years' EPSRC Science Photo Competition, Working with Parliament, Collaborate to Innovate Conference and Balancing Capability.
As part of EPSRC's Balancing Capability strategy, the Mathematical Sciences theme has been working with the research community, and other stakeholders, to establish an evidence base, which has provided insight into the research and training landscape of each of the mathematical sciences research areas. As part of this exercise members of the Mathematical Sciences community have produced the following Community Overview Documents.
Report from the EPSRC Mathematical Sciences Pure Mathematics Engagement Workshop held in Birmingham in January 2016.
In February 2016, EPSRC held a workshop to explore the current research and training landscape in applied mathematics, to consider the evolution of the discipline since the International Review of Mathematical Sciences 2010 and to gather evidence of the quality, importance and capacity of the discipline in the UK. The outputs of the workshop provided evidence to inform the development of EPSRC's strategies for research areas in applied mathematics, as well as related research areas, over the next delivery plan period.
In February 2016 EPSRC organised a meeting to discuss the concept of human-like computing and what it would take to design systems that could emulate human performance. The starting point was the recognition that current artificial intelligence and machine learning systems were not human-like in their construction and had limitations in their applications.
EPSRC held a workshop in March 2016 which brought together a range of academics from the Mathematical Physics community. The aims of the workshop were to analyse and contextualise the current UK landscape for Mathematical Physics, and to engage with the community to discuss the direction of Mathematical Physics through the next delivery plan phase.

EPSRC's Annual Report and Accounts 2015/16 reviews our work and achievements through the year, illustrating how we have continued to work in partnership to maximise our investment in world class research in order to deliver the impact so vitally important to the UK.
This issue includes an update on the balancing capability call for evidence as well as general reminders and news.
This Delivery Plan sets our principal plans for 2016/17 - 2019/20 and is published in response to the government's allocation for research investment following the 2015 Spending Review.
A brief summary of recent activities and opportunities, which includes important information about applications to the Associate Peer Review College.
Dstl and EPSRC held a roundtable in Defining a Research Strategy for uncertainty in September 2015. The meeting brought together a range of academics, industrialists and government users across a range of disciplines including Applied Mathematics, Economics, Engineering, Operational Research, Political Science, Psychology and Statistics. The aim of the event was to investigate the current research landscape, explore common themes and discover big challenges in uncertainty.
EPSRC held an Operational Research Theme Day in September 2015. The workshop brought together a range of academics and users in areas of Operational Research including Mathematical Sciences, ICT and Engineering. The aim of the event was to look at the Operational Research portfolio including; the health of the people pipeline, strengths and weaknesses of the area, potential application areas and future visions.
In September 2015 an independent review of the quality of UK fission and fusion research was commissioned. EPSRC will use its findings to aid their deliberations on EPSRC's future strategy and priorities.
A brief summary of recent activities and opportunities, which includes important information about how you can engage with our Balancing Capability initiative.
In June 2015 the EPSRC published this Review of Analytical Science in the UK following extensive consultation with all stakeholders involved with this research area. As a result of this a Review Group was commissioned to draw out recommendations to EPSRC, the research community and stakeholders based on the report's findings. These are now available here. EPSRC will consider the recommendations and work with the community on an implementation plan where possible.
An overview of outcomes and impacts of EPSRC-supported research.
The report shows how EPSRC supports UK growth and productivity through its investment in excellent engineering and physical sciences research and training, including major activities such as The Alan Turing Institute, the Quantum Technologies Programme and a new Energy Catalyst fund.

The EPSRC Review of Mathematical Science Infrastructure contains conclusions on the current capability and makes recommendations for how future mathematical science infrastructure should be supported.
The 2014 Research Excellence Framework (REF) has revealed comprehensive evidence of the sustained economic and social impact of EPSRC's investments in engineering and physical sciences (EPS) research. This report, and its companion leaflet, presents the findings of an analysis of the REF EPS impact case studies, carried out by EPSRC.
