Second call now open
UKERC have launched the second open call for applications to the £1.5 million Whole Systems Networking Fund. Funded by EPSRC, this scheme aims to improve equality, communications and collaboration between those working in the field of whole systems energy.
The Fund is helping to develop best practice around networking, fostering better representation of UK capacity in whole systems energy research, encouraging fresh voices and building new working relationships within the community.
Up to £60,000 is available per project, at 80% fEC.
We are currently accepting applications for the second open call. The application deadline is 5pm, Tuesday 29th May 2018.
Applicants are welcome to propose projects on any topic. However, we encourage projects that explore how one or more of the following themes fit, or will fit, into the whole energy system:
- Decarbonisation of heat
- Nuclear (both fission and fusion)
We are looking for a diverse portfolio of projects, so previously funded projects should not be used as an indicator of success for future applications. Find out about the projects funded in the first round here.
