  • Building Collaboration at the Physics of Life Interface
  • This is the first of two calls for proposals from a UKRI Physics of Life fund to support internationally leading research that requires collaborative, interdisciplinary working to address key challenges at the interface of physics and the life sciences. This UKRI call, led by EPSRC with support from BBSRC and MRC, is making available up to £15 million, to include £13.2 million of resource funding and £1.8 million of capital funding.

    Please note that there is an "intent to submit" stage to this call, which must be submitted via the online form on the call page by 16:00 on 15 January 2019.

  • Airguide Photonics Collaboration Fund Call for Research Proposals
  • The EPSRC-funded Programme Grant Airguide Photonics includes a Collaboration Fund to enable the inclusion of new partners to bring additional value to the programme. Initial engagement will be via short research projects that support the objectives of the programme. UK-based academic researchers are invited to submit proposals for projects valued up to £50,000 (exceptionally up to £100,000), which directly or indirectly contribute to the key areas of the Airguide programme and which add benefit to the overall aims of the project.

  • Telling Tales of Engagement Competition 2018
  • The Digital Economy (DE) Theme is running a competition designed to help capture and promote the impact that your Research Council funded digital economy research is having. Three prizes of £10,000 are available to support researchers to further tell the story of research impact in an interesting and engaging way to a wider audience.
