EPSRC held four workshops as part of the evidence collection for the Review of EPSRC Doctoral Support. The workshops were an opportunity to introduce the purpose and scope of the review and collect the community's opinions on a range of topics. EPSRC is now publishing the report so that members of the community who couldn’t attend the workshop can contribute to the evidence collection by commenting on the outputs. Please read the report for full details on how to contribute.





The EPSRC Digital Economy Theme ran a virtual workshop "Identifying challenges for a Sustainable Digital Society" on 11th June 2020, bringing together participants from a wide range of institutions and organisations, and spanning a range of disciplines (including technical, social and humanities). The outputs of the workshop are now available.

New guidance to reflect Pathways to Impact change. Public engagement involves activities that bring researchers and the public together. It is more than just meeting an audience and telling them about your research - effective public engagement is about two-way communication, with the researchers listening to and learning from participants.

The Engineering Theme at EPSRC ran a workshop in October 2019 to review the Engineering for a Prosperous Nation portfolio. This workshop also provided the opportunity to explore the opportunities to provide further funding to extend the research in progress and enhance the impact of the initiative. A summary of the outputs of the workshop are captured in this report.

UKRI held two workshops on the Circular Economy in June 2019 in Manchester (5th June) and London (21st June).

The workshops provided an opportunity for UKRI to bring together multiple stakeholders and facilitate transdisciplinary partnerships. This report summarises the outputs of the workshop.


Report on the Outputs and Next Steps of the Future Challenges in Software Engineering Workshop held on 10 July 2018 at The British Library London.  

The Manufacturing the Future Theme at EPSRC ran four workshops between December 2018 and March 2019 to engage with a broad cross-section of the UK Manufacturing community. A summary of the outputs of the workshops are captured in this report.

A new study, commissioned by EPSRC from Clarivate Analytics, clearly demonstrates the world leading impact of EPSRC-funded research. Drawing on over 97,500 publications attributed to EPSRC funding by researchers using the researchfish(r) platform, the study focused on nearly 60,000 articles published in journals covering Engineering and the Physical Sciences during the years 2008-2017. (The Appendices are available as a separate download.)

A circular economy is an alternative to a traditional linear economy (make, use, dispose) in which we keep resources in use for as long as possible, extract the maximum value from them whilst in use, then recover and regenerate products and materials at the end of each service life. To understand the socio-economic impact of its investment in the area of the circular economy, EPSRC commissioned an evaluation study by Technopolis group.

A decade on from the start of the Digital Economy Theme, the world has been transformed by digital technology.

On the 26 July 2018, EPSRC held a one-day workshop at the Holiday Inn, Bristol, in order to bring together a range of technical experts to discuss research challenges and requirements.

Throughout the UK, EPSRC-supported scientists, mathematicians and engineers are pioneering greener, more sustainable solutions to some of the most pressing global challenges - from ocean pollution to energy and water poverty. Pioneer 19 is dedicated to their work.

The Engineering Theme at EPSRC ran a workshop in October 2019 to engage with a cross-section of the Civil Engineering community to establish their perspective on past portfolio research investments and the future research landscape. A summary of the outputs of the workshop is captured in this report.

This brochure highlights how EPSRC is stimulating innovation through the next generation of researchers

Through 2017 the EPSRC Mathematical Sciences Theme ran a review of Complexity Science. This report presents advice from the community and summary of the outcomes and discussions of a scoping workshop, community consultation and a community workshop. Over 2018, as part of our balancing capability strategy, EPSRC will consider this report in creating future strategy for Complexity Sciences.

This brochure explains how EPSRC can broker relationships between academia and small, medium and large businesses. EPSRC can help businesses engage with universities to create collaborations to improve their products and services.

In 2017, the Engineering Theme at EPSRC ran three two-day workshops between March and May to engage with a broad cross-section of the UK Engineering community. The primary motivation of the workshops was to share EPSRC's strategy for the Delivery Plan 2016/17 - 2019/20 and discuss its implementation in the context of the Engineering theme's strategy. The workshop content included opportunities to discuss Equality, Diversity and Inclusion, Leadership, Impact, International and Multidisciplinary Working in the context of Engineering and also a horizon scanning exercise to identify potential emerging areas and long-term research challenges.

The Business Engagement Forum (BEF) is one of EPSRC key approaches to interaction with the users of EPSRC research.  The forum launched in 2016 to act as a means of engaging businesses with collective interests across the whole of the EPSRC research base.  This is the report of the third meeting of the forum.

This workshop came out of the ‘UK-China joint programme in low carbon innovation’ agreement between the Natural Sciences Foundation of China (NSFC) and the UK Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC) led RCUK Energy Programme.

This newsletter includes articles on: the Repeatedly Unsuccessful Applicants Policy, Equality, Diversity and Inclusion, New Investigator Award, Konfer and ORBIT.

The report shows how EPSRC supports UK growth and productivity through its investment in excellent engineering and physical sciences research and training.

There is a renewed desire to understand what infrastructure is required to deliver high quality research and produce well-trained, highly skilled people that maintains the UK’s international standing in engineering. This roadmap has been developed in consultation with the engineering community to further stimulate and focus the infrastructure needs of UK engineering research.

Research Outputs 2017 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.
