Changes to Pathways to Impact
Impact is now a core consideration throughout the grant application process and showing how the applicant(s) will maximise the impact of the proposed research should therefore be intrinsic to the proposal itself in a way that is appropriate to the nature and scope of the research being proposed.
For example, in proposals focused on discovery research the proposal may focus principally on the generation of new knowledge, whilst proposals with significant elements of applied research may have impacts related to economic and societal benefits.
For information on how the recent changes to Pathways to Impact plans and the Impact summary will affect your Standard Mode application and its assessment:
This call is to fund research proposals in Marine Wave Energy.
Approximately £4.5 Million (80% FEC) is available to support 4-5 grant proposals, each up to £1 Million. Proposals should be for 36 months’ duration.
Proposals should fall mainly under the EPSRC remit but may include integrated social and environmental aspects surrounding the use of Wave Energy Converters.
On behalf of UKRI, EPSRC are offering funding for up to 4-5 Centres with total funding available of up to £20 million. Expressions of interest are requested for delivering cross-cutting research in the area of Digital Manufacturing.
The EPSRC Future Electrical Machines Manufacturing (FEMM) Hub is offering 3 awards up to the value of £50,000 each (80% fEC) to support Feasibility Studies at TRLs 1-3.
This call is to fund proposals to support the goal of the decarbonisation of heating and/or cooling. Proposals must be interdisciplinary in that all proposals must include an economic and/or social science component.
The Digital Economy Theme, led by the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC), in close collaboration with the Arts and Humanities Research Council (AHRC), the Economic and Social Research Council (ESRC) and Innovate UK, is investing up to £5 million (at 80% FEC) of EPSRC funding to support around six sociotechnical, interdisciplinary, co-created, novel research projects that explore user-focused, transformational digital technologies and services to achieve a Sustainable Digital Society. The Digital Economy Theme welcomes multi-disciplinary research that spans the whole of the remit of UK Research and Innovation (UKRI), however, the research must be at least 50% within EPSRC's remit to qualify for funding.
The EPSRC Future Manufacturing CMAC Research Hub is offering funding to support four Feasibility Studies at TRLs 1 – 4. The funding is available for novel short-term research studies of advanced manufacturing technologies to complement the current Hub research programme of advanced pharmaceutical manufacturing. This call seeks to support studies primarily aligned with innovative approaches to digital design and application of advanced measurements.
The Human Data Interaction Network Plus, funded by the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC), has announced a call for proposals focused on Surveillance and Resistance.
This call is for researchers to apply for large amounts of computational resource to conduct computationally intensive modelling, simulation and calculations. Projects should be ambitious and pioneering, we encourage a high-risk/high-reward strategy, and outputs should have significant potential for a high future impact. EPSRC wants to encourage researchers to consider what they can do to significantly push the boundaries in computational research using High Performance Computing (HPC) in their field. This call is the successor to the ARCHER Leadership calls, which ran prior to 2020.
EPSRC is currently inviting proposals to the second call for Transformative Healthcare Technologies for offer of awards in Phase 1, the development phase.
UK Research and Innovation (UKRI) invites proposals for interdisciplinary research and innovation consortia under the second wave of the Strategic Priorities Fund (SPF) Clean Air Programme.
EPSRC is seeking applications from Early Career industrialists, academics, and from individuals working in the third sector and government organisations to join our Engineering Early Career Forum.
As part of the Redistributed Manufacturing in Deployed Medical Care Network Plus award funded by EPSRC, around £1.2M is available for research projects.
This call is open only to those who were successful at the outline stage of the Responsive Manufacturing call and have been invited to submit a full proposal. The EPSRC Manufacturing the Future Theme will provide up to £10M (Research Council contribution) to support a portfolio of Responsive Manufacturing research projects.
The Stephen Hawking fellowships will support and develop the next generation of visionary scientists in theoretical physics at the beginning of their career. UKRI are providing funding for five annual calls delivered jointly by EPSRC and STFC.
This is the seventh call for Statements of Need for new and existing National Research Facilities that will support excellent engineering and physical sciences research. These facilities provide leading edge capabilities and technique development at a national level and/or access to European research facilities.
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.
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.
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.
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.
