EPSRC - Budget
  • Budget for research will drop dramatically in financial year 2013-14
  • There is a relatively large budget for training in 2013-14
  • But this reflects the new call for CDTs going live
epsrc water priorities
EPSRC – Water Priorities
  • Water Engineering
    • Technologies related to water resource management, treatment and distribution systems
    • Investment in this area will be Grown relative to the rest of the portfolio (current value ~£16m) over the CSR period
      • Research underpins key global societal challenges
      • Many reports indicate how important this area is
      • Multidisciplinary area encompassing chemistry, process engineering, civil engineering as well as social, biological and environmental science
      • EPSRC will support high quality basic research in this area
      • Research should be long-term, ambitious and creative
      • Impacts made by research in this area could be potentially transformative

EPSRC – Water Priorities
  • Coastal and Waterway Engineering
    • Engineering of coastal and waterway structures, management and defences
    • Investment in this area will be Maintained relative to the rest of the portfolio (current value ~£16m) over the CSR period
      • Research underpins key global societal challenges
      • Key investment in this area has been the FRMRC
      • There is now an opportunity to take research in this area in new directions
      • EPSRC will focus on long-term, ambitious and creative research
      • Will look to broaden the portfolio beyond flooding into integrated water management and form stronger links with the Water Engineering Portfolio

epsrc broader priorities
EPSRC – Broader Priorities
  • Living With Environmental Change
    • Water and Infrastructure highlighted as a priorities
      • Resilient national infrastructure, water security and protection from extreme events (e.g. flooding)
  • Energy Challenge Theme
    • Energy Efficiency (Grow)
    • Whole Energy Systems (Grow)
  • Water-Energy Nexus
  • This is “on our radar”
  • Potential activity currently being scoped
