The EPSRC Future Metrology Hub is offering funding for a number of feasibility studies to conduct novel research at TRLs 1 to 3 in three distinct areas: 1) Photonic integration for metrology sensors, 2) Novel methods for automating metrology, and 3) Measurement in challenging environments. Projects can include the development of new technology for metrology, new techniques to utilise existing technologies or novel applications for metrology which yield a step change in manufacturing capability.
This call is for applications to support Centres for Doctoral Training, focussed on cohort-based doctoral training in areas where both breadth and depth of research training are required to address UK skills needs at the doctoral level.
The Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC) is investing £4 million to support novel engineering projects in radio frequency and microwave devices that will demonstrate the potential of this research field to achieve our Prosperous Nation ambitions.
The Healthcare Technologies theme is inviting selected proposals for an Interdisciplinary Research Collaboration in Targeted Therapeutic Delivery. Applications are required to be ambitious, collaborative and multi-disciplinary in nature. The proposals should build upon existing strengths and expertise and demonstrate potential to address the challenges of Targeted Therapeutic Delivery Technologies.
On behalf of the UKRI partners, EPSRC is pleased to confirm that additional investment in Centres for Doctoral Training will be made to support research training of relevance to Artificial Intelligence (AI). This is expected to support 10-20 CDTs.
The EPSRC-funded Compound Semiconductor Hub has announced its first feasibility call, spanning research in addressing low TRL (1-4) problems, including the development of new manufacturing technologies, analytical studies to develop a fundamental understanding of state-of-the-art processes, or the development of process modelling and optimisation techniques.
EPSRC are seeking applications from Early Career industrialists, academics and from individuals working in the third sector and government organisations to join our Early Career Forum in the Engineering theme.
The EPSRC Energy programme is looking to invest in a follow-on activity in the decommissioning, immobilisation and management of nuclear waste.
Access to the national high performance computing resource, ARCHER can be allocated as part of EPSRC grants at the time of the award.
EPSRC offers access to ARCHER through calls for proposals to the Resource Allocation Panel (RAP). Users can request significant amounts (>1,000kAUs or >66,667 ARCHER core hours) of computing resource over a maximum 1 year period. 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 offering open access to five Tier-2 High Performance Computing facilities through this call for proposals. The five facilities users can access through this call are: Cirrus, GW4, CSD3, HPC Midlands +, and JADE. Further details on each of these centres can be found in the call document. For details on how to access The Materials and Molecular Modelling Hub (MMM Hub), please see their website.
The EPSRC Manufacturing the Future challenge theme invites investigator-led proposals which address key research challenges facing manufacturing in the UK today.
This call is the pilot phase of a new EPSRC funding initiative which aims to provide opportunities for leading UK research groups to work in partnership with the best international researchers.
Applications for fellowships at all levels are now open. There is a new framework which removes closing dates and eligibility requirements based on years of experience, and establishes a person specification against which applicants will be judged.
Preparatory access for researchers to test and develop their codes to ensure suitability for the Partnership for Advanced Computing in Europe (PRACE) Tier-0 systems.
Opportunity for Information and communications technologies researchers to pursue an immersive experience in other disciplines and user environments.
The Healthcare Technologies theme has prioritised funding to support novel investigator-led projects during 2017-18. We are inviting investigator-led proposals and intend to batch these through the year.
A future call with the RCUK-India AMR Group is planned. The programme will provide funding for highly collaborative and interdisciplinary research partnerships between the UK and Indian researchers. There will be over £6 million available through the Research Councils to support the UK elements of the partnerships.
This open call is designed to enable individual researchers to develop new skills and build new collaborations with other disciplines and end users so they can address the key health challenges identified in the Healthcare Technologies strategy.
