Proposals for research grants must fall within the remit of STFC.
The STFC Programme remit covers the following core subject areas:
Solar and Planetary Science
Research that seeks to transfer the skills, techniques and technologies developed within the core areas (as above) into other areas
Potential applicants should seek advice from STFC well in advance of submitting a proposal if they are unsure about the relevance of their research grant proposal to STFC's area of research. If applicants are unsure whether their proposals cover the area of STFC remit, please contact STFC via email.
Where a proposal is received that does not address STFC's area of science, it may be referred, in consultation with the Principal Investigator, to a more appropriate Research Council.
Where a proposal may be considered cross disciplinary within STFC, please see the guidance on the application procedure.
