Apply for NERC Innovation Projects 2018!

Deadline: 26 September 2018

The Natural Environment Research Council (NERC) is seeking proposals for its Innovation Projects Open Call.

The Innovation Projects open call reflects NERC’s vision and emphasis on delivering impact. This call picks up where research grants leave off, supporting translational and knowledge exchange activity and enabling research outputs from research council funded research to be taken further and developed into practical (non-commercial) application, so their potential outcomes can be realised.

Funds will be used to support projects which focus upon generating user applicable outputs from past and/or current research council funded research and which translates them into outcomes that achieve impact within the NERC remit. Whilst projects can be purely UK-focused, NERC also welcomes projects that are aimed at improving economic growth and welfare in developing countries.

Funding Information

Proposals may apply for up to a maximum of £155,000 at 100% full economic cost (FEC) and duration of up to 18 months per project.

Eligibility Criteria

  • Applicant can apply for Innovate UK funding if applicant are a UK based business. All kinds of businesses can apply – from pre-startup and new companies to large multi-nationals.
