Software for the Future II

In both the recently published EPSRC E-infrastructure roadmap and the EPSRC Software as an Infrastructure strategy, the importance of software development and the need to invest in people and training in this area has been strongly highlighted. EPSRC has therefore made a long-term commitment to support software development, ensuring that funding continues to support leading scientific research and key codes used by the Engineering and Physical Sciences community.

Subject to quality, up to £4 million of funding is available for projects focused on the development of software that is used in computational science and engineering. All proposals submitted to this call must fall within the EPSRC remit.

As part of an on-going series of regular software development calls, this call covers the development of novel code, the development of new functionality for existing codes and the development and re-engineering of existing codes. Strategic drivers are: developing code for emerging hardware architectures; developing researchers with key software engineering skills and software sustainability.

In order to allow maximum time for the selection of appropriate reviewers and panel members, all applicants must register their intent to submit using the electronic 'Intent to submit' form on the Software for the Future II call page on the EPSRC website. The form must be submitted to EPSRC by 16:00 on Monday 28th April 2014. Full applications will not be accepted where EPSRC has not received an intent to submit form.

Collaborative Computational Projects (CCP)

As part of this call, EPSRC would like to invite the existing portfolio of Collaborative Computation Projects to submit new, innovative and challenging software development Flagship projects. CCP Flagship Projects should be aimed at serving the research community that the CCP represents. All Flagship projects submitted to this call must underpin research that falls within the EPSRC remit.
