The Research Capital Investment Fund is formula-based funding that supports the long-term sustainability of research. This includes contributions to replace premises or infrastructure, improved use of space, and increased sharing and use of research equipment.
The Research England Development (RED) Fund supports institutional-level innovative projects in research and knowledge exchange including collaborations between education providers and between education providers and business.
In engineering and physical sciences research, a world-class infrastructure comprises not just large high-specification equipment and access to central facilities but also the distributed investment in laboratory-based equipment and the technical support needed to ensure its productivity.
One of BBSRC’s priorities is to support research that can contribute to the development of scientifically informed public policy, or that will enable a more scientific and evidence-based approach to its delivery – in any area of science in our remit.
This programme aims to bring together researchers and business, policymakers and non-governmental organisations to better understand and reduce the risks from natural hazards and extreme weather events.
The novel physical design and development of robotic systems, for both fundamental and applied purposes.
The ‘robots for a safer world’ challenge focused on research and innovation in advanced robotics and autonomous systems.
It aimed to create a safer working world for humans by taking them out of extreme environments such as places that are difficult or dangerous for humans to access.
The aim of this programme is to make 21st century global climate change projections more accurate through improved assessment of the Southern Ocean carbon sink and to provide the scientific basis to inform international climate policy on the role of the Southern Ocean in global climate change.
The aim of this programme is to improve disaster risk assessment and forecasting, disaster risk monitoring and the integration of these into practical decision-making in low to middle income countries across sub-Saharan Africa and south Asia.
Improve population health, tackle the health inequalities affecting people and communities, and advance interventions that keep us healthier for longer.
