NERC is inviting proposals for consortia projects requesting funds between £1M and £2.5M (80% FEC), and of up to three years' duration, which will address the objectives of the programme as stated in the announcement of opportunity.
Up to £5M is available to support projects submitted to this call subject to the quality of proposals received. Within that total, up to £0.5M is available from the Scottish Government primarily to support the costs of the participation in joint proposals of its Main Research Providers for rural affairs and the environment, which are not eligible for Research Council funding.
It is expected two to four projects will be supported from this call, depending on the size and quality of the proposals received.
