EPSRC Call for Expression of Interest for understanding sustainable energy solutions in developing countries

EPSRC, a UK government agency on behalf of the RCUK Energy Programme in collaboration with the Department for International Development (DFID) and the Department for Energy and Climate Change (DECC) has announced a call for expressions of interest from organizations (based in either developing countries or the UK) who wish to bid under a major new research call on understanding sustainable energy solutions in developing countries.

Successful applicants will be invited to take part in a short development workshop to refine the priority research challenges around energy in the context of international development and help facilitate collaborative bids. This workshop will be held from 12-14 December in Nairobi, Kenya. The outputs of this workshop will be outline proposals that will undergo peer review immediately following the workshop, the successful outlines will then be invited to submit full proposals. Only attendees present at the development workshop (and those they are representing) will be eligible to submit full proposals to this call.

The UK Research Council’s Energy programme has allocated a budget of up to £5M to support research projects arising from this call. Depending on the quality of proposals received, up to an additional £7.5M of matching funding could be made available from DFID and DECC, bringing the total for this call up to a maximum of £12.5M. It is anticipated that up to three large-scale and ten smaller-scale proposals will be funded through this call.
Applicants will need to complete an Expression of Interest form by 12:00 on Friday 28 September 2012.
