Science, Engineering and Technology Board

The Science, Engineering and Technology Board (SETB) uses scientific and technological insight to identify and champion bold new research challenges at the cutting edge of engineering and physical sciences for future investment.

Meetings take place up to four times a year. In addition to these formal meetings, SETB works flexibly with the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC) throughout the year to provide advice as requested by the executive. SETB members are expected to commit between four and 10 days to SETB work per year.

Members are paid a fee for each activity they are involved with and, when attending meetings in person, are reimbursed for travel and subsistence expenses in line with our policy.

Recruitment for SETB is held every two years.

The next round will open in mid-2025.
