We are inviting applications from eligible researchers to purchase items of research equipment via the 17ALERT call. This call is the second activity in what is anticipated to be a multi-year commitment to mid-range equipment.


Advanced research equipment and the development of capability in its creative use is a key component in maintaining the competitiveness of the UK research base. The RCUK Strategic Framework for Capital Investment ‘Investing for growth: Capital Infrastructure for the 21st Century’ explains the important roles of acquiring state-of-the-art equipment into the science base, and the rapid development of people skilled in its use.

The capital equipment budget for this call is approximately £10 million.

Applications for mid-range equipment costing over £200,000 including VAT must enhance the capability of the UK research base in areas of science in our remit. Applications will typically be from groups of researchers in one or more eligible institutions, for instrumentation to be deployed on a multi-project/multi-use basis.
