Green Transition Ecosystems (GTEs) are large scale projects that focus on translating the best design-led research into real-world benefits. Capitalising on clusters of design excellence, GTEs will address distinct challenges posed by the climate crisis, including but not limited to realising net zero goals.
Research organisations may lead one GTE application only. This means that depending on level of interest, a demand management process will be in place for leading an application. Research Organisations may be involved in any number of applications led by others.
Expressions of Interest
If you are interested in applying for this call with Bath as the as lead organisation:
This will allow us to gauge level of interest and if there will be enough demand for an internal selection process.
This is a multidisciplinary and multisectoral opportunity and it is expected that the combined project team will bring a strong track record across a breadth of areas
Up to £4.625 million is available for the delivery of each GTE
The funding opportunity will open on 10 January 2023, with an expected closing date on 6 April
The call is open to proposals from consortia comprising at least:
- 2 UK-based, UK Research and Innovation (UKRI)-eligible research organisations
- 2 UK-based businesses operating in the design economy:
- design-intensive industries (for example digital design, architecture)
- other functions supporting design-intensive industries (for example supply chain)
- design-intensive workstreams within other sectors (for example aerospace, retail)
- 1 public sector organisation (local or national)
- 1 third sector, civil society or community organisation
This is a multidisciplinary and multisectoral opportunity and it is expected that the combined project team will bring a strong track record across a breadth of areas. However, the overall portfolio of proposed activities must be at least 50% within the AHRC disciplinary remit.
