EPSRC-AHRC-NERC | Improve the sustainability of urban systems & infrastructure


Deadline: 9th November 2021
Maximum Award: £1,000,000

The Network Plus investment will further strengthen  communities to develop new cross-sector and multidisciplinary academic-led communities that work together to:

  • identify opportunities
  • address complex challenges
  • accelerate solutions-based interventions.

EPSRC, NERC and AHRC want to encourage a truly system of systems approach that will involve collaboration and the sharing of knowledge through utilising previous UKRI investments, such as the UK Collaboratorium for Research on Infrastructure and Cities (UKCRIC) facilities.

EPSRC, NERC and AHRC are looking to support and evolve the wider infrastructure and urban systems research communities and strengthen the value of our previous investments in this area. They expect successful bids to be cross-disciplinary, engaging across our portfolios.

This call is interested in developing interdisciplinary communities with a focus on generating positive impact in addition to minimising negative impacts. This call is keen to bring together communities in the UK, including:

  • engineering
  • environmental
  • arts and humanities
  • economic and social research.

This is to address national priorities exemplified and demonstrated at the local or regional level, including:

  • wellbeing
  • social inclusivity
  • community engagement
  • inequalities
  • resilience
  • impacts on communities
  • nature
  • security.
