PRD call for applications 2015

STFC has announced a call for applications to the Projects Research and Development scheme (PRD). Applications should be submitted by the deadline of July 29th2015 and will be reviewed at a meeting of the PPRP Panel on October 28/29 2015. STFC intends to allocate a total of around £1.0 Million. It is expected that most grants will start no earlier than 1 April 2016.

The PRD scheme is intended to develop the capabilities needed to underpin UK science and technology leadership in future Science and Technology Facilities Council projects and gives industry the opportunity, in collaboration with approved research organisations, to apply directly to the STFC for funding for research and development.

The PRD scheme provides funding for research and development projects which enable STFC to deliver the science programme objectives in the areas of particle physics, particle astrophysics, nuclear physics and astronomy. Please note that proposals for project specific R&D, or small upgrades for space instruments and missions, fall within the remit of theUK Space Agency.

More details of the STFC PRD scheme, including an updated guide for applicants can be found on our PRD webpage.
