Encompasses theories, methodologies and tools for modelling, analysis, design and optimisation of self-regulating systems, with an emphasis on uncertainty and robustness of feedback systems. This research area underpins a number of others across the engineering and physical sciences research base.
This area of investment looks at how the arts and humanities have responded to the challenges of COVID-19, including how the pandemic has impacted individual wellbeing, cultural activities, creative industries, and arts organisations.
It covers a diversity of subjects, including law, ethics, design, visual arts and linguistics.
Improve outcomes for people and places across the UK by identifying solutions that promote economic and social prosperity.
The Creative Catalyst offers funding and a package of tailored non-financial support for high-potential micro and small businesses that either:
- are from the creative industries
- support the creative industries
The programme will de-risk innovation in the creative industries and help businesses to grow.
The Arts and Humanities Research Council (AHRC) launched the Creative Industries Clusters Programme in 2018. The £120 million investment continues to drive innovation and growth across the UK’s creative industries, to encourage a new type of applied research.
This investment is supporting the development of precision medicine for improved early diagnosis and treatment of common life-changing diseases.
By funding UK businesses and academia, the challenge aims to accelerate the use of research and health data, delivering better health and economic growth.
The Biotechnology and Biological Sciences Research Council (BBSRC) encourages research that will yield the next generation of new computational technologies, methodologies and resources within our strategic research priorities, as well as more broad bioscience areas.
The theoretical foundations of databases and research into data management systems, distributed information management and query languages.
The aim of this programme is to undertake fundamental research that will advance our understanding of the potential effects that the introduction of a Geological Disposal Facility (GDF) for radioactive waste might have on lower strength sedimentary host rock. This includes detailed conceptualisation of the geology and groundwater.
Design is a strategic priority area for the Arts and Humanities Research Council (AHRC) with design research having much to contribute to the UK economy. AHRC currently funds a £25 million research programme, Future Observatory: Design the Green Transition, aimed at addressing green transition and net zero goals through design interventions.
