EPSRC invites proposals for the Healthcare Impact Partnerships call. Applicants are required to work in partnership with both clinical and business partners to progress their previous EPSRC-funded research outputs towards impact. The proposals should build upon existing strengths and expertise and demonstrate potential to address an unmet healthcare need and/or offer significant added value over current or alternative healthcare solutions.
EPSRC is holding two one-day workshops for Early Career Researchers who work in the area of Physical Sciences.
This call will support Research Software Engineer (RSE) Fellowships for a period of up to five years. The RSE Fellowship describes exceptional individuals in the software field, who demonstrate leadership and have combined expertise in programming and a solid knowledge of the research environment.
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.
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".
In November 2016, the AHRC and the Creative, Digital & Design KTN successfully co-hosted three workshops, where mmersive and interactive technologies were highlighted as a key challenge area. The AHRC are therefore launching this call on Immersive experiences in partnership with EPSRC.
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.)
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.
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.
The EPSRC Strategic Equipment scheme allows for funding to be sought to better share items of capital equipment that are already in place, upon invitation by an EPSRC Theme. This is an open invite by the EPSRC Physical Sciences Theme for applicants to use this route for proposals of this nature for at least the next two Strategic Equipment rounds.
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.
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.
