Changes to Pathways to Impact
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:
UK Research and Innovation (UKRI) invites proposals for projects to establish academic‑led research that addresses widely understood problems in relation to plastic packaging, whose solutions are unknown today, but which if solved will unlock existing barriers to fundamental systems change, and make an important contribution to achieving the objectives of the SSPP Challenge.
EPSRC invites the submission of proposals for projects within the Physical and Mathematical Sciences themes, which will help grow the portfolio of new, transformative research ideas.
The Transforming Foundation Industries ISCF challenge will be investing up to £2m in a Network Plus which will be delivered by EPSRC on behalf of UKRI. The aim of this challenge is to enable the foundation industries (made of six separate sectors: metal, glass, ceramics, paper, cement and bulk chemicals) to work together to address their common challenges of competitiveness and sustainability.
The SUSTAIN Future Steel Manufacturing Hub is initially offering funding for three feasibility studies to conduct novel research which aligns with the Hub’s two Grand Challenges: Carbon Neutral Iron and Steelmaking and Smart Steel Processing.
The EPSRC is inviting submission of full proposals to a Hardware for Efficient Computing call.
A total of £3 million of funding is available to support 4-6 projects (18–36 months) in length under this call.
An application will only be accepted from the successful UKRI Interdisciplinary Circular Economy Coordinators. The Hub will provide national leadership and coordination, driving knowledge exchange and whole-systems learning across the Circular Economy investments funded under this programme and the wider research and innovation landscape (with academic, policy, consumer, third sector and business stakeholders).
EPSRC will shortly be inviting outline proposals for Responsive Manufacturing research projects.
EPSRC will shortly be inviting investigators to submit outline proposals to Round 2 of the Adventurous Manufacturing call.
The Transforming Foundation Industries ISCF Challenge will be investing up to £4.7m in a Research and Innovation Hub which will be delivered by EPSRC on behalf of UKRI.
UKRI are pleased to invite participants to apply to attend a sandpit on Digital technologies for Health and Care.
This call is the second round of a new EPSRC funding initiative which aims to provide opportunities for leading UK research groups to work in partnership with the best international researchers, with projects to start from summer 2021 onwards.
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.
