The Digital Economy Theme would like to support up to five 'NetworkPlus' grants to stimulate development of DE research and communities within key emerging areas of national importance for DE research.

This is the third call for Statements of Community Need for new and existing Mid-range Facilities that will support excellent engineering and physical sciences research.

EPSRC invites submission of proposals from UK university consortia to establish an internationally recognised virtual institute to lead in research, education and knowledge transfer in line with the Industrial Strategy Faraday Challenge "Batteries for Britain".

Engineers have an important role to play in delivering prosperity for the UK. EPSRC would like to stimulate the Engineering community to respond to this challenge through Bright IDEAS awards that aim to address these outcomes.

The EPSRC Energy team is holding a one-day workshop to scope the direction of a potential future collaborative research programme in the decommissioning, immobilisation and management of nuclear waste to follow the DISTINCTIVE investment, which is coming to an end in 2018. This workshop will be held in Bristol on Tuesday 19 September 2017.

The EPSRC Energy team is holding a one-day workshop to scope the direction of a future collaborative research programme in the nuclear fuel cycle to follow the PACIFIC investment, which is coming to an end in 2018. This workshop will be held in Bristol on Monday 18 September 2017.

To help increase the connections between the UK research base and the Catapults, RCUK is supporting the development of new collaborations through research visits/residencies for university (and other eligible research organisations) academics to spend time embedded within the Catapult teams. The first opportunities for this funding are now open.

EPSRC-funded High End Computing (HEC) Consortia provide their members and users with access to computing resources on the national High Performance Computing (HPC) service, enabling research in a certain area of science or engineering. Through this new call EPSRC is looking to support new and existing HEC Consortia that underpin research and research communities within the EPSRC remit.

To maintain the UK's leading position in Nuclear Magnetic Resonance (NMR) for research and development, ca. £20m capital is being made available to procure ultra-high field NMR systems (≥0.95 GHz) and upgrade existing very-high field NMR instruments (≥800 MHz) to support the UK's fundamental and applied research across a range of disciplines within life and physical sciences.

This call is supported through EPSRC's Global Challenges Research Fund (GCRF) allocation. The aim of this activity is to support an internationally leading programme of research to tackle the energy distribution challenges faced by developing countries.

EPSRC and the Energy Technologies Institute (ETI) are seeking expressions of interest to attend our joint event on knowledge exchange entitled "Knowledge - the key to a successful low carbon transition" at the University of Loughborough on 24 October 2017.

EPSRC and the Defence Science and Technology Laboratory (Dstl) continue to engage in a series of fruitful collaborations in signal processing research, running under the banner University Defence Research Collaboration (UDRC) in Signal Processing. Due to this continued success, EPSRC and Dstl wish to continue with a Phase 3 programme, under the title "Signal processing in the Information Age".

The EPSRC Manufacturing the Future challenge theme invites investigator-led proposals which address key research challenges facing manufacturing in the UK today.

In November 2016, the AHRC and the Creative, Digital & Design KTN successfully co-hosted three workshops, where immersive and interactive technologies were highlighted as a key challenge area. The AHRC are therefore launching this call on Immersive experiences in partnership with EPSRC.

The Manufacturing the Future and Digital Economy themes would like to highlight the opportunity for researchers to explore the potential of Digital Manufacturing. The aim of this highlight notice is to provide funding through the Manufacturing the future investigator-led route to explore the research challenges facing the Digital Manufacturing community.

Applicants to this call can request ARCHER compute resource only to facilitate the remainder of their existing EPSRC grant.

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.

EPSRC are seeking Expressions of Interest for Prosperity Partnerships (Second call).

The Research Councils UK Digital Economy Theme and the cybersecurity strand of the Partnership for Conflict, Crime and Security are investing up to £10 million to support co-created, novel, interdisciplinary projects that solve real problems in aspects of trust, identity, privacy and security (TIPS) in the digital economy in a responsible way.

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.

A future call for an Interdisciplinary Research Collaboration in Targeted Therapeutic Delivery Technologies is planned for September 2017. Applications will be required to be ambitions, 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.

Innovate UK, EPSRC and the APC are working closely together to deliver an integrated programme of research and innovation to deliver novel battery technologies as part of the Industrial Strategy Challenge Fund (ISCF). (Please note that Expressions of Interest should be submitted by 16.00 on 31 August 2017 using the online form on this page.)

EPSRC is launching an open, competitive call to fund projects aimed at improving equality, diversity and inclusion within the engineering and physical sciences. This call is the first of its kind in the Research Councils and is being managed as a pilot by EPSRC as part of the Research Councils’ collective approach to Equality, Diversity and Inclusion during the transition to UK Research and Innovation (UKRI).

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.
