This fund allows researchers to respond quickly to transient and unexpected scientific opportunities. These may be events affecting the environment like earthquakes or volcanic eruptions.
You can apply if you are a research group or individual based at a UK university or other approved institution. We will fund up to 80% of your project’s cost.
This grant aims to support further use of existing data resources created by the ESRC and other agencies. It is open to researchers at any career stage who wish to develop their skills in using secondary data. The social sciences must represent more than 50% of the research focus and effort.
You can apply for funding for cutting-edge equipment that improves your ability to carry out research in any area funded by EPSRC. We fund research into chemistry, engineering, information and communication technologies, materials, mathematical sciences and physics.
This funding opportunity supports innovative, large-scale and complex research tackling big science questions. You can apply for funding between £1.2 million and £3.7 million (at 100% full economic cost) for projects lasting up to five years. We will fund 80% of your project’s full economic cost.
Apply for funding to research myalgic encephalomyelitis (ME), also known as chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS).
You can get the funding through any of the existing:
- grants from MRC research boards
- MRC fellowships.
You should apply through the existing funding opportunity that is most relevant to your science area and career stage.
