This programme aims to inform decision making by addressing critical gaps in our current understanding of the economic values, benefits and costs that society associates with, and derives from, biodiversity.
We will fund projects, bringing together scientists and economists to advance our knowledge in biodiversity and economics.
The Economic and Social Research Council supports the creation of new insights from research and data sets that help people, organisations and policymakers understand the economy and improve day-to-day life in the UK and around the world.
Design and manufacture of electromechanical systems and their accompanying power electronic drives and controls.
This research area focuses on the study of chemical phenomena associated with charge transfer, charge separation and electrochemical reactions at interfaces.
The aim of this programme is to carry out research to predict how the environment will respond to chemical exposure. Research will focus on the impacts of chemicals on populations and ecosystems, and on chemicals (and chemical mixtures) whose environmental impacts have not been explored.
The aim of this programme is to establish the UK as a leading innovator in smart and sustainable plastic packaging for consumer products, delivering cleaner growth across the supply chain, with a significant reduction in plastic waste entering the environment by 2025.
Research into energy demand and its reduction through technical and socio-economic measures. It includes research in the context of the built environment, transport, heat, industrial processes and products.
This programme is investing in world-leading research, training and innovation across the energy system. The aim is to increase scientific and industrial capability to ensure secure, safe and affordable energy while continuing to tackle climate change through the reduction of carbon emissions.
The Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC) energy and decarbonisation theme aims to position the UK to meet its energy and environmental targets and policy goals through world-class research and training.
The goal is to secure a low-carbon future through the creation of reliable, economically viable energy systems while protecting the natural environment.
This research area assesses the effects of decarbonisation on the existing energy transmission and distribution networks and how future network technologies will deal with these challenges.
