STFC’s astronomy and space science programme supports scientists investigating some of the biggest questions in astrophysics, cosmology and solar system science.
Audience of the Future was a UKRI Challenge Fund investment of £39.3 million into the development of new immersive technologies such as virtual, augmented and mixed reality. The challenge also invested in research to better understand audiences for immersive productions in the fields of art, culture, heritage and entertainment.
MRC supports and funds research into autism, focusing on early life stages and on the potential for early intervention.
The BBSRC Follow-on Fund (FoF) is designed to support the translation of fundamental research into practical application, including commercialisation. We want to ensure that innovation arising from BBSRC-funded research has the best opportunity to create positive impacts for society.
BBSRC’s Innovation to Commercialisation of University Research (ICURe) programme trains, funds, and supports research teams to determine whether there is a market for products or services that utilise their bioscience-based research and technologies.
