Frontier Engineering: Progression Grants

EPSRC is inviting the existing Frontier Engineering Centres to apply for further funding to provide a baseline of flexible support (a platform) that can be used for the retention of key staff, feasibility studies, longer-term research and international networking to specifically enhance the sustainability and impact of the Frontier Engineering Centres. These awards are similar in nature to the previous EPSRC ‘Platform Grants’ scheme. This is a closed call for the existing centres funded through the Frontier Engineering scheme in 2012.

This is a closed call for the existing Frontier Engineering Centres for full proposals, these proposals will be competitively assessed via the Engineering Standard Mode route.

Applications for Frontier Engineering: Progression Grants should be staff-centric and the expectation is that requests should not exceed two years in duration and/or £750k EPSRC contribution and that resources requested are appropriate to the Centre's research portfolio.  EPSRC must receive your application by 16:00 hours on 21 November 2018.
