The Natural Environment Research Council invites proposals for its capital call. This provides capital assets for science, innovation, estates, IT and facilities. Proposals should demonstrate how the capital asset would support environmental science, be aligned with NERC’s remit and strategic priorities, have potential to stimulate innovation and economic impact, and create or build on a new capability rather than simply maintaining an existing capability. Assets supported must enhance current capability. Funded equipment must be actively used and available to other researchers through equipment sharing arrangements, ensuring that the best possible value is gained from investment.
UK HEIs that receive grant funding from one of the HEI funding bodies, eligible research institutes, NHS bodies, independent research organisations and NERC research centres may apply.
The total budget is worth up to £3 million. Applicants may submit up to two proposals worth at least £100,000 but not exceeding a combined total of £300,000.
