Resource allocation panel (RAP): top-up access to ARCHER (summer 2014)

Access to the national high performance computing resource can be allocated as part of EPSRC grants at the time of award. However, initially only two years of resource are granted at which point, grant holders are invited to apply for a top-up to meet the objectives of their EPSRC grant. Applicants to this call can request ARCHER compute resource only to facilitate the remainder of their existing EPSRC grant.

Launch of EPSRC Awards Recognising Inspirational Scientists and Engineers

2014 marks the 20th anniversary of the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council.

To celebrate the incredible innovation that has taken place over recent decades and, in particular, the researchers who have led that innovation, EPSRC, in partnership with the Royal Academy of Engineering are launching the RISE awards – Recognising Inspirational Scientists and Engineers.

An independent judging panel will select their top 10 established inspirational scientists and engineers from nominees put forward by universities, industry, professional bodies and learned institutes. Each of these ten will then nominate someone they see as a future world-class talent.

EPSRC is at the heart of UK innovation, generating the fundamental knowledge that fuels economic and social prosperity and investing in the skilled people who drive research forward. Together with the Royal Academy of Engineering, the EPSRC supports the very best researchers throughout their careers by fostering their ambition, innovation and adventure.
