Accelerate impact from our research
Many of the schemes we fund or support are focused on the generation of new fundamental and early stage applied programmes of research. However, there are some of our programmes directed towards the acceleration of impact.
We created the Prosperity Partnerships to support existing, strategic, research-based partnerships between businesses and universities. Each 'Prosperity Partnership will comprise co-investment by EPSRC and industry in large-scale collaborative research programmes that have been co-created by both the business and academic partners. The programmes are business-initiated and are co-created between business and academia, focusing research activity in world-leading, focusing discovery science (TRL 1-3) on meeting long-term industrial challenges and delivering real business benefit. The 2016 call is now closed to new applications but we expect further calls will be announced in the future.
