Proposals must be submitted through the Joint Electronic Submissions (Je-S) system that is used by all seven research councils to provide electronic grant services for faster processing.
You must fill in an application form on Je-S and attach certain documentation.
Registering to use Je-S
To submit an application to EPSRC, the applicant and their organisation need to have an account on Je-S. Ensure new accounts are sought well in advance of the planned submission date for any proposal.
Proposals submitted by applicants are first sent to their organisation’s submitters pool, where they are checked, before being submitted to the councils.
Follow instructions in funding opportunities
If submitting a proposal in response to a funding opportunity, follow the instructions within the funding opportunity.
The instructions will specify a closing date, document types, scheme and call to select in Je-S. Leave enough time for your organisation’s submission process before the call closing date.
Adding or amending information
We may return proposals so data and attachments can be added or amended by you.
If changes need to be made to a proposal, EPSRC will send it back to the research organisation’s submitter pool and Je-S will notify the applicants and research offices by email.
The email will explain why the proposal has been returned, give instructions for amendments and resubmission and give a due date for return.
EPSRC will only return a proposal for amendment once, so ensure the proposal is correct before sending it back to us.
If you have any queries about using the Je-S system, contact the Je-S helpdesk.
