Summary on Grant Application Form
This proposal describes the University of Reading's plan for the allocation of the £100k EPSRC Capital Award emphasising support for Early Career Researchers (ECRs). The allocation will be used to put in place an internal fund into which eligible applicants will be able to bid for small items of equipment (£10,000- £50,000) to support their cutting-edge research. This fund will be targeted at ECRs, complementing the University's existing support for minor capital equipment (which is not ECR-focused). Awards will be made to ECRs proposing excellent research rooted in EPSRC remit, enabling them to stretch beyond their current research (in scope or in collaboration). We will ensure that for the capital equipment awards that are made, the University is in a position to provide ongoing logistical and technical support in line with the philosophy of the World Class Labs ecosystem.
