IGNITE Network+ Flexible Funding

The IGNITE Network+ flexible funding scheme is a major deliverable for the project. A total of £500,000 at 100% fEC is available (40% of the value of the network funding) over the lifetime of the project (Sept-26) to support two schemes:

  • Sandpit Event for Flexible Funding up to £60k: Increasing the number of diverse PIs/PLs on UKRI grants (FA1) – see latest call details
  • EDI Challenges: Identifying barriers and designing disruptive initiatives (FA2) – see latest call details

This call announces ‘Flexible Funding’ available for Increasing the number of diverse PIs/PLs on UKRI grants (FA1). This is to directly address the low number of Project Leads[1] [Principal Investigators in JeS] applying from under-represented backgrounds to UKRI/ EPSRC’s Energy related calls. The total fund available is £360,000 at 100% fEC, we will fund 80% of the eligible full economic cost (fEC), following the standard UKRI funding model.  We are inviting Expressions of Interest to attend a sandpit event (in collaboration with C-DICE – Centre for Postdoctoral Development in Infrastructure Cities and Energy).
