NERC is currently inviting proposals for large scale inter-disciplinary research and innovation funding to provide whole system solutions to major environmental challenges. The call will provide up to £20M funding in total over 5 years to support 2 awards of a maximum £10M each.
The ‘Changing the Environment’ Programme will focus on developing solutions to critical environmental challenges through supporting and encouraging working across disciplines within successful organisations. The research and innovation programmes delivered through this funding will be expected to look across a system bringing together a wide range of disciplines to drive solutions in the selected area of environmental focus.
For further details please see the full announcement of opportunity below.
We will be holding a virtual sandpit Thursday 10th – Friday 11th September to begin the development of an outline bid for the Changing the Environment Programme. We hope that this will be an opportunity to develop a multidisciplinary collaboration drawing on expertise from across Wales.
The assessment process for this programme will be in two stages (outline and full). The closing date for outline proposals is 16:00 on 5 November 2020. Details for the requirements for the full proposal stage will be published in due course and no later than 5 November 2020.
Please register your interest to participate in the sandpit via the form below. Closing date for expressions of interest Wednesday 26th August 17:30. We will confirm details with participants by Wednesday 2nd September.
All information submitted will be treated as confidential. We will not contact any named organisations or potential collaborators without your express permission.
