EPSRC Support by Research Area (Surface Science) in Theme (Research Infrastructure)

Research areas are used to describe EPSRC's portfolio of excellent long term research and high quality postgraduate training.

Grants are classified using one or more research areas. The number and value of grants listed below reflects how the theme portfolio is described by this research area.

Please note: some research areas will appear under multiple themes. There is no unique, absolute, relationship between a research area and a theme.
