NERC Pushing the Frontiers of Environmental Science Research

Closing Date: 19/07/2022

Grants available to adventurous researchers to carry out curiosity-driven, high-risk, high-reward environmental science projects within the NERC remit.

The Natural Environment Research Council (NERC) is funding ambitious, curiosity-driven, high-risk, high-reward environmental science projects through the Pushing the Frontiers of Environmental Science Research call.

This scheme will support adventurous researchers who have curiosity and imagination to enable discoveries that unlock new knowledge.

NERC is seeking proposals that can support pure, applied, technology-led or policy-driven research but still address, or provide the means to address, clearly defined scientific questions. The research must sit predominantly within NERC’s remit.

Multidisciplinary and interdisciplinary research projects are welcomed, as are those that can be designed, supported and delivered in partnership with other research funders and research users.
