EPSRC is leading a call on behalf of the RCUK Energy Programme in collaboration with the Department for International Development (DFID) and the Department for Energy and Climate Change (DECC) and invites expressions of interest from organisations (based in either developing countries or the UK) who wish to bid under a major new research call on understanding sustainable energy solutions in developing countries.
Successful applicants will be invited to take part in a short development workshop to refine the priority research challenges around energy in the context of international development and help facilitate collaborative bids. This workshop will be held from 12-14 December in Nairobi, Kenya. The outputs of this workshop will be outline proposals that will undergo peer review immediately following the workshop, the successful outlines will then be invited to submit full proposals. Only attendees present at the development workshop (and those they are representing) will be eligible to submit full proposals to this call.
For more information please go here. The closing date for expressions of interest is the 28th September 2012.
