Proposals up to £500K (80% fEC) over a maximum of two years are invited. Substantial additional leverage from University and project partners is required.
How to apply
Applications will be submitted through Smart Survey via https://www.smartsurvey.co.uk/s/RB2ET/
This is a single stage process with proposals reviewed by a non-technical expert panel. The panel will make a recommendation of Fundable, Fundable with Amendments or Not Fundable for each proposal. Proposals assessed as Fundable with Amendments or Not Fundable will be provided with clear guidance from the panel, and the applicant will have the opportunity to address the concerns of the panel in a written response. Following the response, the panel will make a final recommendation of Fundable or Not Fundable. The panel’s recommendations will subsequently inform funding decisions as per standard EPSRC process.
