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.

The PETRAS National Centre of Excellence for IoT Systems Cybersecurity invites proposals from eligible UK higher education institutions (HEIs) for collaborative projects in the cybersecurity of devices and networks at the edge of the internet research, to be undertaken jointly with user partners.

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.

The Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC) has up to £4 million available to fund between four to six programmes of research which will support novel proposals that put People at the Heart of Software Engineering research.

This call will support researchers who can advocate for the importance of Software Engineering and highlight the huge impact it has on our everyday lives. We want to encourage research into responsible software engineering that considers all stakeholders from the start of the research programme. This includes considering the needs of the users and developers of software as well as considering the potential impact software could have on people. This is in line with the People at the heart of ICT priority, one of the six cross-ICT priorities.

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.)

EPSRC is seeking applications from Early Career industrialists, academics and from individuals working in the third sector and government organisations to join our Early Career Forum in the Engineering theme.

This call is funded through EPSRC's Global Challenges Research Fund (GCRF) allocation, with support from the Physical Sciences Theme. The aim of this activity is to support an internationally leading programme of physical sciences research to tackle the challenges faced by developing countries.

The Healthcare Technologies Theme aims to invest in research to support the next generation of underpinning science and emerging technologies. The focus of this call is Transformative Healthcare Technologies for 2050; technologies expected to have an impact within the next 30 years for the NHS, community or home care and an ageing workforce. We are looking to support visionary projects which could create a step change in how healthcare is delivered.

This call is to fund proposals to support the goal of the decarbonisation of heating and/or cooling. Proposals must be at least 50% within the remit of EPSRC.

Proposals can be for a research grant or for a Network Plus grant.

It is expected that the funding available for this call is approximately £8 million.  We anticipate that proposals may vary considerably in scale and scope depending on the planned approach.  Proposals should be for a maximum of £2 million and for a minimum of £500k.  Proposals should be for 36 to 48 months duration.


The Manufacturing the Future theme will provide up to £12 million over two funding streams, to support a portfolio of manufacturing-relevant projects from emerging research areas, enabling new, potentially disruptive future manufacturing systems.

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.

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.
