EPSRC wants to hear your ideas to solve 'big research problems'

EPSRC has introduced an initiative to encourage the wider research community to submit "adventurous and exciting ideas" that are "ambitious and have the ability to transform the research landscape". Their process is designed to "support the development of an idea from its original conception into a compelling business case".

The research council will appraise any submitted ideas in relation to its ability to contribute to the Industrial Strategy, multidisciplinary research and/or fundamental science innovations. The goal is to create a pipeline of feasible ideas at various stages of development, so that when opportunities arise there are potential research concepts developed and ready to go.
