Target Audience: Chancellors Fellows & early career researchers across all faculties

This scheme replaced the previous new grant scheme and offers greater flexibility for early career academics to gain the first grant to set them on the path to research independence.  We have secured a wide panel of speakers to cover every aspect of the scheme:

  • Our EPSRC regional manager will give an overview of the scheme and talk through eligibility requirements
  • Two current grant holders will share their experience on gaining a grant via this scheme
  • A selection of senior academics who have sat on grant awarding panels will give us their advice and tips for success

Note; the session is open to all disciplines but will have a particular focus on EPSRC as our major research council however, the scheme guidelines are the same regardless of council

Catering will be provided.

This course will be delivered by:

Dr Derek Craig, EPSRC Regional Manager, Dr Stefanie Reher Politics EPSRC, Dr Ralf Bauer (EEE, EPSRC), Prioritisation panel members. 

Chaired by Prof. Anja Lowit, Deputy Associate Principal
