In support of our 2011/12 to 2014/15 Delivery Plan, we now fund research by theme without distinguishing between responsive and targeted modes. EPSRC's published reports from 2011/12 onwards reflect current objectives and our new way of working.

In the financial year 01 April 2013 to 31 March 2014, EPSRC considered 1,918 research grant proposals through Peer Review, and provided funding for 620 - a funding rate of 32%. With a financial demand of £1,021 million, but only able to fund £366 million, gave a value of 36%. Funding rates exclude institution grants awarded by algorithmic methods).

During the same period, the average number constrained by the Repeatedly Unsuccessful Applicants policy was 18, and in March 2014 was 18.
