This call is the pilot phase 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. (Please note: to be eligible for this stage, applicant teams must have submitted an outline proposal to the earlier deadline of 1 May 2018 and been invited forward to submit a full proposal.)

Up to £10 million of EPSRC funding is available to fund 5-8 research projects in concerning end use energy demand/energy efficiency technologies which align with the objectives of the centre for energy demand solutions.

The Manufacturing the Future theme at EPSRC is planning to hold four regional workshops to engage with a cross-section of the manufacturing community and those working in related areas. The workshops will cover the outputs of the 2018 manufacturing retreat and areas of EPSRC's and Manufacturing the Future's Strategy and Activities.

EPSRC wishes to support existing, strategic, research-based partnerships between business and universities by providing an opportunity for co-investment in large-scale, long term, user-inspired basic research programmes at TRL 1-3.

This is the fifth call for Statements of Community Need for new and existing National Research Facilities that will support excellent engineering and physical sciences research. Previously known as mid-range facilities, these facilities provide leading edge capabilities and technique development at a national level and/or access to European research facilities.

EPSRC is offering a 'Public Affairs and Media Training' opportunity for EPSRC-supported researchers. This opportunity is open to researchers who are interested in policy and evidence based decision making and keen to acquire new communications skills.

Up to £4 million (£5 million FEC) is available to fund 4-5 Networks plus concerned with aspects of decarbonising the UK transport system. Please note that this call is for full proposals and is open only for those bids which were successful at the outline stage.

Up to £1 million is available to fund a single proposal. This funding should be used for the support of core research, flexible fund, support staff including a Hub Manager as well as communications, engagement and networking activities.

EPSRC and the National Research Foundation of Korea (NRF) seek collaborative research applications with UK- and Republic of Korea (ROK)-based principal investigators covering research challenges in the areas of nuclear waste management, decontamination and environmental assessment, and robotics for decommissioning/decontamination.

The Manufacturing the Future Theme is looking to invest in highly adventurous manufacturing research to address the research visions of the theme. (Please note: Applicants must complete the Intent to Submit form on the call page by 16.00 on 25 October 2018.)

EPSRC would like to establish a NetworkPlus to develop and build on industry-academic relationships in Trust, Identity, Privacy and Security (TIPS).

The Manufacturing the Future Theme would like to support up to five NetworkPlus grants to stimulate development of manufacturing research and communities within key emerging areas of national importance for manufacturing research.

The UKRI Energy Programme, led by EPSRC, would like to encourage the participation of UK researchers in the current United States Department of Energy (DoE) Nuclear Energy University Program (NEUP) programme.

These two related calls are supported through EPSRC's Global Challenges Research Fund (GCRF) allocation. The aim of this activity is to support an internationally-leading programme of mathematical sciences research to tackle the challenges faced by developing countries focussed on empowering inclusion and modelling society.

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.

A future call with the UK Research and Innovation-India AMR Group is planned. The programme will provide funding for highly collaborative and interdisciplinary research partnerships between the UK and Indian researchers. There will be over £6 million available through the Research Councils to support the UK elements of the partnerships.

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.

A third call for Prosperity Partnerships is planned for late Summer 2018.
