Funding opportunity list

Better methods, better research: Jun 2021

Researchers can apply for funding to improve the methods being used in wider biomedical and health research. The programme is jointly funded by MRC and the National Institute for Health Research, and the programme welcomes research that falls within the remit of either funder.

We will normally award up to £500,000 and support 80% of the full economic costs of your proposal.

BBSRC international travel award scheme

You can apply for up to £3,000 to cover travel and subsistence when travelling outside the UK in support of your BBSRC-funded research.

EPSRC network grant

You can apply for network grants to build new interdisciplinary research communities and topics at any time in any area funded by EPSRC. We fund research into chemistry, engineering, information and communication technologies, materials, mathematical sciences and physics.

EPSRC discipline-hopping in ICT

You can apply for support to use your ICT skills in a new discipline or learn ICT research skills to apply them in your own discipline.

NERC urgency funding

This fund allows researchers to respond quickly to transient and unexpected scientific opportunities. These may be events affecting the environment like earthquakes or volcanic eruptions.

You can apply if you are a research group or individual based at a UK university or other approved institution. We will fund up to 80% of your project’s cost.

MRC Career development award: April 2021

If you are a talented postdoctoral researcher, this award can help you become an independent investigator, establishing and managing your own research programme.

You can get funding for a research and training programme lasting up to five years and offering personal and career development.

Secondary Data Analysis Initiative

This grant aims to support further use of existing data resources created by the ESRC and other agencies. It is open to researchers at any career stage who wish to develop their skills in using secondary data. The social sciences must represent more than 50% of the research focus and effort.

Strategic equipment grant

You can apply for funding for cutting-edge equipment that improves your ability to carry out research in any area funded by EPSRC. We fund research into chemistry, engineering, information and communication technologies, materials, mathematical sciences and physics.

NERC large grant

This funding opportunity supports innovative, large-scale and complex research tackling big science questions. You can apply for funding between £1.2 million and £3.7 million (at 100% full economic cost) for projects lasting up to five years. We will fund 80% of your project’s full economic cost.
