Quantum technologies exploit the unique properties of quantum physics to achieve functionality and performance that cannot be achieved using classical physics. EPSRC funds research and training to tackle the technological challenges in realising a new generation of quantum technologies.
This research area looks at techniques and applications that use and propagate signals, and related research supporting future connected infrastructure.
Design and development of novel device architectures throughout the radio frequency, microwave, millimetre wave and terahertz domain.
The aim of this programme is to support the research needed to understand the risks posed by plastic pollution in low and middle income countries. It will explore which interventions, policies and regulations can mitigate these risks, enabling a cleaner, more resilient and productive environment.
The aim of this strategic priority is to address issues of food waste through increased efficiencies or interventions which prevent wastage, at any point in the food chain, from source to stomach. It also looks at potential alternative uses for food waste.
This area seeks to develop the science and tools that can help repair or replace damaged or diseased human cells or tissues to restore normal function. It could address a number of currently incurable degenerative conditions and help revolutionise treatment in the 21st century.
The aim of this programme is to bring research organisations together with businesses, policy bodies and other organisations to deliver high impact and focused research translation and innovation in environmental science.
The principles of replacement, refinement and reduction (the 3Rs) are now widely accepted internationally as criteria for humane animal use in research and testing. This priority aims to advance further improvements through the development, integration and promotion of 3Rs approaches.
The Research Capital Investment Fund is formula-based funding that supports the long-term sustainability of research. This includes contributions to replace premises or infrastructure, improved use of space, and increased sharing and use of research equipment.
The Research England Development (RED) Fund supports institutional-level innovative projects in research and knowledge exchange including collaborations between education providers and between education providers and business.
