  • 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.

  • Establishing a Research Centre for Securing Digital Technologies at the Periphery
  • EPSRC, on behalf of UKRI, is seeking to make a step-change in the broad research areas of cyber security, designing in trust, privacy, security and resilience associated with the Internet of Things (IoT) through this call. This will establish a Research Centre focusing on Security of Digital Technologies at the Periphery (SDTaP).

  • 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.
