Capital for Great Technologies Advanced Materials, Robotics and Autonomous Systems and Grid-scale Energy Storage
The Chancellor of the Exchequer announced additional capital funding for the eight great technologies in the prebudget statement. The Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC) is now planning to invest the funding it received to strengthen research capability by supporting requests for capital equipment.
This call announces £85 million for science capital bids to increase the strength and productivity of the research base within three great technologies: Advanced Materials (£30 million), Grid-scale Energy Storage (£30 million) and Robotics & Autonomous Systems (£25 million). The focus of the proposal should be to enhance existing research capabilities by improving the research equipment base.
