Decarbonising Transport Networks Plus

This call is for outline proposals.  Up to £4 million (£5 million fEC) is available to fund four to five Networks plus concerned with aspects of decarbonising the UK transport system. Each Network should request funding to support of core research, flexible fund, and support staff (including a Hub Manager) as well as communications, engagement and networking activities.

EPSRC will look to fund proposals that collectively span the breadth of technological approaches to the challenge of decarbonising transport.  While multi-disciplinarity is encouraged, the clear majority of partners and research each network supports should have a scientific and technological approaches which fall within the remit of EPSRC.  Those successful after a sift outline panel will be invited to submit a full proposal, which will undergo full peer review and assessment at an interview panel.
