STFC Early Stage Research and Development Scheme
Closing Date: 19/09/2022
Grants available for early stage research and development work within the fields of particle physics, astronomy and nuclear physics.
The Science and Technology Facilities Council (STFC) has announced the Early Stage Research and Development Scheme for funding to support low technology readiness levels (TRLs) – up to TRL5 – with a focus on development in the particle physics, astronomy and nuclear physics (PPAN) community.
The call considers the PPAN community to encompass the following broad areas of STFC’s remit: particle physics, particle astrophysics, astronomy, nuclear physics, accelerator physics, solar and planetary science, and computing that underpins these areas.
It is anticipated that the funding will lead to a secondary aim of developing and strengthening multidisciplinary research collaborations as well as networks participation in multidisciplinary science programmes that may be supported in the future by major UK Research and Innovation (UKRI) or STFC funding schemes.
