UK Energy Research Centre programme includes a £3.5million Flexible Research Fund that will be allocated via a series of three open calls, anticipated to take place in 2020 and 2021. Help scope and prioritise topics for the first round of funding, expected to be announced in early 2020, at a workshop on 28 November.
The workshop will introduce the Flexible Fund, whose aims are:
- To ask, what areas of energy research should the UK be focusing on?
- To provide flexibility for the UKERC research programme in the light of new scientific insights or developments in policies, technologies or industries.
- To bring a wider range of researchers and disciplines into UKERC’s research programme, including researchers from outside the ‘traditional’ energy community.
- To scope and develop new research agendas in partnership with funders, the research community and other stakeholders; and to promote integration in the UKERC research programme, and to fill gaps where needed.
Sign up for the workshop here, attendance will be confirmed on 1 November.
