Submitting your application
Before starting an application, you will need to log in or create an account in Je-S.
- Select ‘documents’, then ‘new document’.
- Select ‘call search’.
- To find the opportunity, search for: EPSRC Accelerating the Medicines Revolution Outline Small Grants
This will populate:
- council: EPSRC
- document type: Outline proposal
- scheme: Outline
- call/type/mode: EPSRC Accelerating the Medicines Revolution Outline Small Grants
Once you have completed your application, make sure you ‘submit document’.
You can save completed details in Je-S at any time and return to continue your application later.
If successful at the outline stage, you will be invited to submit a full application. We will send you guidance on completing a full application at this next stage.
The invited full proposal stage of this opportunity is likely to run on the Funding Service, our new funding platform, rather than through Je-S.
The Funding Service has a digital form-based format. This means that the exact application requirements and assessment criteria may alter from what is currently published. Further information will be published in the full proposal funding opportunity.
EPSRC must receive your application by 1 August at 4:00pm UK time.
You will not be able to apply after this time. Please leave enough time for your proposal to pass through your organisation’s Je-S submission route before this date.
You should ensure you are aware of and follow any internal institutional deadlines that may be in place.
Your outline application must include a one page case for support which for this opportunity follows a non-standard format.
Case for support (one page)
It must address these key questions:
- what is the feasibility or translational study?
- why is this idea speculative and high-risk?
- if the proposed idea is successful, what is the potential reward and why is this exciting?
EPSRC will reject proposals that do not fall within the funding opportunity scope. Ideas must be within the majority remit of EPSRC.
The one page case for support should focus on the ‘what’ and ‘why’, rather than the ‘how’. Therefore, the specific methodology or detail of work packages should not be included.
You should attach your documents as PDFs to avoid errors. They should be completed in single spaced Arial 11 font or similar-sized sans serif typeface. EPSRC will not accept any other attachment types under this opportunity.
Read our advice on writing proposals for EPSRC funding.
EPSRC will not fund a project if it believes that there are ethical concerns that have been overlooked or not appropriately accounted for. All relevant parts of the ‘ethical information’ section must be completed.
Guidance on completing ethical information on the Je-S form.
EPSRC guidance can be found under ‘additional information’.
