Up to £12 million per annum for up to Four Awards is available from the Faraday Institution as part of the Industrial Strategy Challenge Fund - Faraday Battery Challenge. This call invites selected full proposals from researcher consortia (normally of up to five institutions) interested in research projects in four challenge areas. Applications are by invitation only following an outline process.
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.
This open call is designed to enable individual researchers to develop new skills and build new collaborations with other disciplines and end users so they can address the key health challenges identified in the Healthcare Technologies strategy.
The EPSRC Manufacturing the Future theme invites standard research proposals for consideration at a manufacturing-focused prioritisation panel. A standard Manufacturing panel will be held every quarter (subject to sufficient demand). Proposals for any panel should address key research challenges facing manufacturing in the UK today and in the future. This activity is intended to highlight the theme’s long term ambition to increase the number of investigator- led research ideas we support.
A call for up to six 'Next Stage Digital Economy Centres' is open. The centres must draw substantially on the outputs, knowledge and positioning of Digital Economy (DE) expertise and demonstrations resulting from previous DE Theme funding to create real world impact, be it cultural, social or economic.
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.
This is the fifth phase under the UK-India Civil Nuclear Collaboration between Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC) and the Department of Atomic Energy (DAE) in India.
EPSRC intends to commit up to £4 million to support the creation of Multidisciplinary Research Hubs, bringing together researchers working in the Mathematical Sciences with academics and other stakeholders within Healthcare Technologies, such as healthcare professionals.
Manufacturing Fellowships are aimed at people who have the potential to be future research leaders in their field of manufacturing research. (Please note that the dates given for this call are approximate, and will be confirmed nearer the time.)
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.
Opportunity for Information and communications technologies researchers to pursue an immersive experience in other disciplines and user environments.
The Healthcare Technologies theme has prioritised funding to support novel investigator-led projects during 2017-18. We are inviting investigator-led proposals and intend to batch these through the year.
Applications for fellowships at all levels are now open. There is a new framework which removes closing dates and eligibility requirements based on years of experience, and establishes a person specification against which applicants will be judged.
Following a statement of need panel in December 2018 EPSRC will be inviting proposals to run a UK High-Field Solid-State NMR National Research Facility (NRF).
Preparatory access for researchers to test and develop their codes to ensure suitability for the Partnership for Advanced Computing in Europe (PRACE) Tier-0 systems.
