Funding opportunities

Funding available from Supergen Bioenergy Hub

Yesterday, we launched our call for flexible funding up to £100,000 to investigate the potential for co-production of bioenergy and bioproducts from UK resources to deliver sustainable environmental benefits. The deadline to apply is 10 July.

We also have rapid response funding to support the UK’s bioenergy research community in responding to industrial and policy challenges that arise during the lifetime of the Hub and in developing active international research collaborations. Projects should be completed by May 2022.

End Use Energy Demand Technology Call 2 – deadline: 1 October

The UK Research and Innovation Energy Programme, via EPSRC and ESRC, have funded the Centre for Research in Energy Demand Solutions (CREDS) as part of the second phase of strategy to support the broad community of researchers and innovators in energy demand in the UK. EPSRC is looking to fund additional research proposals concerning technologies to enable end use energy demand. Find out more.

Funding available from US government

The US government has recently announced three funding opportunities in the following areas:

While institutes outside the US are not eligible to serve as lead applicants on proposals, they can partner with an eligible institution and be a sub-awardee on the project. Projects submitted to the programme within the Agriculture and Food Research Initiative must clearly demonstrate benefits to the sustainability of US agriculture.
