Flexible Fund: Call 3

The UK Energy Research Centre is issuing the third Call for Proposals under its £3m Research Fund. We are seeking proposals from universities or other institutions eligible to hold Research Council awards, in three topic areas:

  • Governance and decision-making: coordination across sectors and the role of
    different actors
  • Affordability and gas market volatility
  • Interaction with non-energy systems

Projects are expected to start by the summer of 2022, and are usually expected to last up to 20 months. The supported research will form an integral part of UKERC’s research programme.

There will be a two-stage selection process for the call. Expressions of interest are invited by 28th January 2022. Following evaluation, successful applicants will be invited to submit full proposals. These must be costed using standard Research Council Full Economic Costing (FEC) principles, and will be subject to full peer review. The closing date for full applications will be the 8th April 2022. Decisions can be expected by May 2022.

If you have any queries please contact Ioanna Ketsopoulou.
