The Engineering theme recently worked with a cohort of current EPSRC Challenging Engineers and Royal Academy of Engineering Senior Research Fellows to make available to them, through a competitive process, opportunities for further research investments. A total of £15m has been awarded to support recognised current and future research leaders to build on an existing programme of research, or to break into new areas.
The following are activities related to the Engineering theme, carried out under the previous EPSRC Delivery Plan.
In September 2010, experts drawn from the worlds of technology, industry, the arts, law and social sciences met at the joint EPSRC and AHRC Robotics Retreat to discuss robotics.

The Challenging Engineering programme is designed to identify and support individuals with the potential to become future leaders of engineering research, with the ambition of building a team around them to deliver their research vision.
