Applications to the mathematical sciences small grants scheme must focus on original research projects or feasibility studies for research projects.
EPSRC is looking to support grants in the region of £10,000 to £80,000 at full economic cost (FEC, total amount up to £100,000) and up to 12 months in duration.
Full proposals can be submitted at any time and will be considered by EPSRC on a rolling basis.
This scheme will follow a non-standard format for submission and assessment, with standard EPSRC eligibility and assessment criteria being applied. Applicants as principal investigators or co-investigators can only hold 1 small grant at any one time.
Any submissions to this funding opportunity will not count towards the repeatedly unsuccessful applicants policy.
As set out in the council transition to the new Funding Service, the Joint Electronic Submission (Je-S) system closed to new Mathematical Sciences Small Grant applications on 5 September 2023. Applications submitted prior to the September deadline will be assessed at a November panel or the following panel.
The funding opportunity will transition to the UKRI Funding Service in autumn 2023, reopening in January 2024.
