Engineering Early Career Forum Call

EPSRC are 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.

The Engineering theme aims to identify and tackle fundamental engineering research challenges with the potential for lasting academic, social and economic benefit to the UK. These challenges are often inherently interdisciplinary, cutting both across EPSRC's portfolio and across the Research Councils more widely. Engaging with early career stakeholders from academia, industry and policymaking is a crucial part of achieving these aims, helping to set the direction for engineering research in the near future.

The Engineering Early Career Forum acts as an informal advisory stream to EPSRC. Members are advocates for EPSRC within the community, and provide a broad perspective of the needs and views of the engineering community, offering opinion across the breadth of the Theme.

We are looking to recruit around eight new members in this exercise, and we have a particular aspiration to improve the diversity of the Forum.

Further information on the Forum and its current membership is available on this website.
