We provide support for our members to expand their networks and make new connections. We aim to create opportunities for Welsh organisations to submit large scale funding applications that span different organisations, sectors and disciplines.
We want to increase Welsh engagement with UK Research and Innovation (UKRI) Strategic Priorities Fund and the Natural Environment Research Council Highlight Topics. We are holding research sandpits and workshops throughout the year to support both the development of ideas for future topics and proposals in response to specific calls. You can find further details about our events here.
If you have an idea for a research sandpit we’d love to discuss it with you and see what we can do to make it happen.
NERC will shortly be inviting proposals for fellowships as part of the UKRI Strategic Priorities Fund Landscape Decisions programme.- Expected November 2019
Three types of fellowships lasting up to two years are foreseen:
- Research synthesis fellowships
- Research translation fellowships
- Landscapes for communities fellowships
If you are interested in developing a fellowship application? Would like support finding the right contacts in Welsh Gov, NRW or elsewhere? Would you like to meet and network with others developing applications?
We are holding workshops in Cardiff on 5th December. Register your interest and apply here.
