EPSRC Delivery Plan Talk 2016

On Wednesday 29 June the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC) came to Bath to speak about their new five year strategic plan.
Neil Viner (Director of Programme Delivery) and Amanda Chmura (Head of University Relationships and Business Engagement) talked about the rationale for a five-year plan and the new direction for funding from the EPSRC, including some immediate topic-based challenges.
They also spoke about the future plans and how EPSRC fits with the upcoming developments in UK Research and Innovation (UKRI). 
Dr Jon Hunt, Director of Research and Innovation Services (RIS), who hosted the event, says: “EPSRC is a major funder for the University of Bath, supporting over 50% of our research portfolio. We all need to understand their strategic direction to continue to gain the resources we need to deliver excellent research. Please do take time to watch the video of the talk”.
