NERC highlight topics focus strategic research on a defined topic area.

Highlight topic ideas are generated by the community (an individual or group) and are submitted annually.

The Science Committee considers these ideas and recommends the priority topics for NERC to include in the next highlight topics funding opportunity.

This webinar will include:

  • an overview of the highlight topic ideas process
  • details about the commissioning process
  • a speaker sharing their insights about the Science Committee prioritisation process and assessment criteria
  • a speaker sharing their experience of submitting an idea, from the academic’s perspective.
