A revolutionary new type of smart window could cut window-cleaning costs in tall buildings while reducing heating bills and boosting worker productivity.
Our Film The Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC) is the UK's main agency for funding research in engineering and the physical sciences. EPSRC invests around £800 million a year in research and postgraduate training, to help the nation handle the next generation of technological change.
An independent review of the UK Research Councils, led by Sir Paul Nurse, is published today. The report, 'Ensuring a Successful Research Endeavour', reviews why and how the UK should undertake research.
The highlights from EPSRC’s Impact Report 2014/15
Childhood memories of sticky hands from melting ice cream cones could soon become obsolete, thanks to a new food ingredient.
Without innovative research, medical breakthroughs that help people live better for longer would not be possible. Moreover, finding new ways of tackling healthcare challenges increasingly depends on closer collaboration between different disciplines and between different research and funding organisations.

EPSRC, as part of its contribution to the RCUK Energy Programme, is looking to support collaborative research proposals in Energy Storage technologies.
EPSRC would like to invite Expressions of Interest to bid into the call for research proposals in Systems Change - Towards a Circular Economy. The aim of the call is to support research projects focused on modelling and understanding whole systems approaches to the circular economy, within the context of UK manufacturing.
This is a call for applications to access storage on the national Research Data Facility (RDF). EPSRC has made the strategic decision to open up the RDF to researchers outside of the remits of NERC and EPSRC to ensure maximum usage and impact from the facility. This call is for applicants within the remit of RCUK but performing research outside of the remit of EPSRC and NERC.
EPSRC recognises the need for researchers to be able to store active computational data and to be able to use this data for further scientific benefit. This is a call for applications to access storage on the national Research Data Facility (RDF), for researchers within the remit of EPSRC. The total amount of storage available for this pilot call is 1000TB.
Applicants to this call can request ARCHER compute resource only to facilitate the remainder of their existing EPSRC grant.
EPSRC offers access to ARCHER through calls for proposals to the Resource Allocation Panel (RAP). The aim of this call is to provide access to our national state-of-the-art high performance computing facility for proposals of high scientific quality that would benefit from ARCHER.
EPSRC is seeking applications from respected industrialists, academics and from individuals working in the third sector and government organisations to join our Strategic Advisory Network.
Following the first call for feasibility studies in January 2015, four studies were funded in 2015 around the themes of cost modelling, 3D printing machine-enabled networks, CAD data transfer standards, and material supply chains. In 2016, a further two to three feasibility studies will be conducted.
EPSRC seeks expressions of interest for the refresh of the membership, of the Early Career Forum in the scope of the Manufacturing the Future challenge theme.
