STFC is inviting UK PIs to submit applications for capital equipment to support STFC's PPAN programme as well as our External Innovation capabilities.
The capital equipment call will invite two types of proposals:
The amount of total capital available is around £2M - £3M for the period up to 31 March 2019. The call will open from 10 April 2018 with a closing date of 12 June 2018. Proposals will be reviewed by PPRP at its meeting on 11 and 12 September with awards being announced in October 2018. A consortium or university group will only be able to request a maximum of five items or a maximum bid of £250k (50% cost to STFC). Applications for PPAN R&D activities will be reviewed separately to applications for building External Innovation capabilities.
Proposals will be considered from consortia or university groups who are in receipt of an STFC Consolidated Grant or Institute award only.
Further information can be found in the 2018 Capital Equipment Call Guidelines (PDF, 152KB).
All proposal submissions should be made using the Je-S System.
For those who wish to apply; to help STFC manage this call please can you register your interest by emailing George Madden (PPRP Secretary) at the earliest opportunity. The email should contain a short paragraph on your proposed work.
