EPSRC supports excellent, long term research and high quality postgraduate training in order to contribute to the economic competitiveness of the UK and the quality of life of its people. At any one time we are supporting a portfolio of research and training between £2-3billion.
The EPSRC knowledge map refresh project provides a richer picture of the UK research landscape through our strategic relationships with Universities, particularly activity within EPSRC’s remit which is funded through other sources. A key objective was to begin to communicate the wider landscape across engineering and the physical sciences to a range of stakeholders including government and business.
We have mapped EPSRC's portfolio and with the support of our Strategic Advisory Teams, input from our Strategic Advisory Network and agreement from Council, we have made decisions on the relative funding trajectory for our portfolio research areas.
