EPSRC Support by Research Areas in Theme (Energy)

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 in question is currently constituted.

Please note: this is a dynamic database reflecting the current grants portfolio by Research Area within a Theme. Therefore, the number and value of grants within a Research Area will not match exactly the thematic Research Area distributions given at EPSRC's portfolio.
