Forthcoming funding call: EUTOPIA Science and Innovation Fellowships

This major initiative run by IAS will be a great opportunity to build deeper research collaborations with our European partners.

EUTOPIA-SIF aims to enhance the research potential and career perspectives of outstanding researchers from around the world. It will provide the opportunity for early-career researchers to develop their independent research and to undertake training. Fellows will be hosted by one of the EUTOPIA partner universities and will be offered extensive mobility opportunities within EUTOPIA and beyond.

Launching in October 2020, the first round of the EUTOPIA-SIF will fund 20 post-doctoral fellowships across the alliance.

EUTOPIA-SIF focuses on five Key Research Areas:
· Materials engineering: including advanced analytical science, photonics, new material science, quantum technology

· Data & Intelligence: including artificial intelligence, complexity, information-systems engineering

· Health: including immunology and antibacterial resistance, cancer, ageing, reproductive health, neurosciences

· Sustainability: including energy, circular economy, mobility, urban planning, material heritage, water management

· Welfare & Inclusion: including business management and finance, governance, ethics, inequality, law and demography

EUTOPIA-SIF is funded by the European Commission’s Marie Skłodowska-Curie programme. As such, transnational mobility is an essential requirement. The scheme will offer our academic community the chance to bring excellent early-career researchers from anywhere in the world to Warwick for to two years. It will also offers our early-career researchers the opportunity to apply for a fellowship at one of the other EUTOPIA partners while maintaining their links with Warwick.
The deadline for applications is likely to be January 2021 with the first cohort expected to start in September 2021. Deadlines will be confirmed when the call is launched in October.

The Economic and Social Research Council (ESRC) has announced an open competition for an International Public Policy Observatory (IPPO), to support public policy decision-makers in developing effective strategies for responding to and recovering from the social, economic and public health impacts of the Covid-19 pandemic. ESRC intends to fund the IPPO (£2M for an initial period of two years) to enable a rapid response to current urgent evidence need and to generate evidence about the effectiveness of this new model to inform further investment decisions.

For information please see further details regarding the funding announcement International Public Policy Observatory (IPPO)

Given the strategic nature of this investment and the relatively tight timescales to develop an application, the University will be seeking a collaborative and coordinated approach to bidding for this opportunity. Interested applicants are requested to contact Carolyn Silvester via with the following details, by 9am on Monday 10th August 2020:

· Name, job title and department

· The policy theme(s) to which your research relates, including a brief overview (max. 100 words) of your relevant expertise.

· Details of any appropriate external contacts or partnerships (both national and international) that could be quickly mobilised to contribute to bid development.

· An indication of whether you would like to be considered in an overall leadership capacity (noting the below timescales), and if so, a brief overview (max 200 words) of your experience of working with policy stakeholders and of managing complex strategic projects.

Circular Economy Network+ in Transportation Systems (CENTS)

Deadline: 7 May 2020

The Circular Economy Network+ in Transportation Systems (CENTS) has received funding from the EPSRC to build a UK-wide community of academic, industry and policy experts to deliver future designs, business models and manufacturing approaches so that emergent transport systems are inherently circular.

From 31 March 2020, CENTS invites proposals for collaborations between academic and industry partners that will enable cross-disciplinary, foresightful and risky early stage research. Applications involving Early Career Researchers (ECRs) are particularly encouraged. Projects are expected to be approximately 6 months in length. The expectation is to fund up to five projects of up to a maximum value of £50,000 at full Economic Cost (fEC), with funding to be awarded at 80% fEC.

EPSRC Knowledge Transfer Partnership

Knowledge Transfer Partnerships (KTPs) are one of the biggest schemes we fund as part of our commitment to knowledge exchange. The KTP scheme's mission is to strengthen the UK's competitiveness and wealth creation by enabling research organisations to apply their research knowledge to important business problems.
At the heart of each KTP is a relationship between a company/organisation and staff in a knowledge base institution. The institution's staff apply their expertise to a project that will help the development of their collaborative partner. The project is carried out by an associate (a recent graduate or postgraduate), who also benefits from an organised training programme. In the process, the business relevance of the knowledge base institution is enhanced.

If you require further information please email:

Further information about KTPs, including contact details for KTP Offices and KTP Advisers is available on the KTP website.
