Summary on Grant Application Form
This is a proposal for investment in equipment to benefit researchers in at least 46 UCL centres and departments across eight faculties. It will support UCL's strategic goals of realising the impact of excellent cross-disciplinary research and providing its researchers with cutting-edge equipment to enable them to compete with the world's best. All requested items of equipment fulfil the underpinning multi-user equipment objective of the call.

The UCL equipment items were chosen via a competitive internal selection process, overseen by the Office of the Vice-Provost (Research), with evaluation based on scientific excellence, potential for impact, and alignment to UCL and EPSRC strategies. UCL's Vice-Provost (Research), Prof David Price, is the PI on this bid, and his Office will oversee the award and the monitoring of the benefits. The Lead Investigators for each equipment item will be responsible for regular reporting to his Office on progress against objectives.

The requested UCL equipment items are: (A) NMR equipment; (B) a 3D laser scanner with a thermal imaging camera attachment; (C) an ultrasound research platform; (D) a pair of functional Near-InfraRed Spectroscopy (fNIRS) wearable, head-mounted scanning devices; and (E) a 3D microscope.
