Faraday Institution – Battery Study and Seed Research Projects

Closing Date: 28/02/2022

Funding from the Faraday Institution to conduct fast-paced, year-long studies or seed research projects to research topics that are generally not covered within the current portfolio and could expand as part of the next phase of Faraday Institution research.

The Faraday Institution was established in 2017 as part of the Industrial Strategy Challenge Fund – Faraday Battery Challenge. The Institution is funded by the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC) and is the UK’s independent institute for electrochemical energy storage science and technology, supporting research, training, and analysis.

The Faraday Institution has launched the Battery Study and Seed Research Projects opportunity to widen its research scope and activity. The scope of the call is for seed and study projects to research topics that are generally not covered within the current portfolio and could expand as part of the next phase of Faraday Institution research for 2023 and beyond.

Funding will be available to support up to 12 fast-paced, year-long studies or seed research projects. Projects will be focused and deliver transformative results that may lead to a second stage of collaborative research beyond the initial exploratory work. The projects will be expected to lead to application-inspired research to strengthen the UK’s position in electrochemical energy storage research and ultimately make UK industry more competitive.

Proposed projects should start no later than 1 June 2022 and run for a maximum of up to 12 months.
