This call is the pilot phase of a new EPSRC funding initiative which aims to provide opportunities for leading UK research groups to work in partnership with the best international researchers.
Up to £15 million is available for this call, and we aim to support 10-15 research consortia. To be eligible, applicant teams must hold at least one strategic grant from EPSRC or a portfolio of EPSRC grants of at least £3 million, in each case with grant end dates after 1 May 2018. Full details of the eligibility requirements are given in the Eligibility section in the call document. Please also note that UK applicants may only be named as Investigator (either Principal or Co-Investigator) on one proposal to this call.
In this pilot phase we will consider proposals to collaborate with academic partners based in any country outside the UK.
This call will operate through a two-stage assessment process, with the deadline for outline proposals on 1 May 2018.
