NERC large grant to tackle big environmental science questions

Proposals will be accepted in any area of environmental science, provided it is predominantly within a research area or subject associated with NERC’s remit.

Multi-disciplinary proposals that cross into other research council areas are welcome.

NERC are looking for proposals that can support pure, applied, technology-led or policy-driven research but still address, or provide the means to address, clearly defined scientific questions.

The funded projects will have the potential to be world-leading.

Large research projects must tackle big science questions. To achieve this, they will often involve multidisciplinary approaches. We expect your proposal to show several interdependent components (we call these work packages) interacting in a single overall structure.
