EPSRC discipline-hopping in ICT

You can apply for support to use your ICT skills in a new discipline or learn ICT research skills to apply them in your own discipline.

EPSRC new investigator award

You can apply for this award at any time in any area funded by EPSRC if you are an academic and have not previously led a research group or received a significant grant.

We fund research into chemistry, engineering, information and communications technologies, materials, mathematical sciences and physics.

EPSRC working with overseas scientists

NERC urgency funding

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.

BBSRC Brazil pump-priming award

You can apply for up to £35,000 over two years to pump-prime collaborations between scientists in the UK and São Paolo state in Brazil. The awards support the development of future applications within our remit under the UK Research and Innovation-São Paulo Research Foundation lead agency agreement.

BBSRC international travel award scheme

You can apply for up to £3,000 to cover travel and subsistence when travelling outside the UK in support of your BBSRC-funded research.

BBSRC standard research grant

You can apply for research grants at any time in any area within the remit of BBSRC. BBSRC funds research in plants, microbes, animals (including humans), and the tools and technology underpinning biological research from the level of molecules and cells, to tissues, whole organisms, populations and landscapes.

UKRI-SBE lead agency opportunity

The UKRI-SBE lead agency opportunity allows UK and US-based researchers to submit a collaborative proposal that will go through a single review process. Grants are funded through existing funding programmes at the relevant lead agency.

Return to research support bursary

You can apply for this bursary if you are a researcher looking to return to an academic research career after a break of two or more years.

You can get funding of up to £2,500 for no more than six months to support you in developing a proposal suitable for submission to the STFC fellowship scheme.
