EPSRC Decarbonising UK Freight Transport Network Plus - first call for flexible funds

As part of the EPSRC Decarbonising UK Freight Transport Network Plus award we have a flexible fund of approximately £480,000 to award to small projects that will pave the way to larger funding awards in future.

In this first round we are looking to award funding to five successful applicants, one per research question. The maximum funding available varies, depending on the research question you choose, with the maximum available being £75,000 (£60,000 at 80% fEC). The projects are expected to run for three to six months.

The deadline for applications is 16.00, Thursday 30 April 2020.

All applications will be submitted through the Decarbonising UK Freight Transport Website. Application forms and the full call documentation can be found at the website.
