Following the Natural Environment Research Council's (NERC) announcement to invest in strategic capital priorities, RDSO will be running a central process for submitting proposals to the latest NERC call.  

NERC Strategic Environmental Science Capital Call

Grant size: Minimum value of £100,000 per proposal (3 per institution), but not exceeding a combined total value of £500,000.
Scope: NERC remit and their strategic priorities

We have an institutional limit of 3 proposals, this includes as partners with other universities.

If you have an idea for this call, then please contact RDSO - using the email by 29 July, with a 1-page description covering the following headings:

  • Equipment name
  • Value (rough at this stage)
  • Science need (Indicate how the requested asset fits to NERC Strategy and delivery of NERC science)
  • Impact potential - internal and external.

An internal selection process will put forward our strongest bids with RDSO support.

Previous call awarded grants are available to view.

Please note NERC's definition for capital is quite broad. If you are unsure, please contact us before the 29 July to discuss this.
