Refocused projects and investment under review

Future Programme Grants/Platform Grants will be commissioned in the context of the portfolio landscape (to be published in July 2011) to ensure resources are invested strategically. We will also review international collaborations with other national funding agencies.

We will work more closely with funded researchers to encourage them to take advantage of new opportunities within their existing EPSRC resources. We will also further encourage the Physical sciences community to play to their UK strengths, working with universities’ strategic research committees, or similar bodies, to deliver a greater number of centres of research excellence and/or complementary research clusters.
