Call status:
Invitation for proposals 
Physical sciences

This call invites proposals for large-scale, integrated projects to exploit nanotechnology in the healthcare domain. Specifically we are seeking proposals that address the development of:

  • Nanotechnologies for the targeted delivery of therapeutic agents
  • Nanotechnologies for healthcare diagnostics

This call is a major element of the Cross Council programme Nanoscience through Engineering to Application, where we are seeking to support the application of nanotechnology to healthcare through projects incorporating significant novelty in engineering or physical sciences integrated with relevant biological and medical elements.


Submitting your proposal

Please refer to the Je-S help for details on preparing and submitting an application to the scheme. EPSRC will only accept applications through the Joint electronic submission (Je-S) system.
