Funding opportunity: New Horizons – EPSRC

23 November 2021

Following the first phase of the pilot New Horizons scheme in 2020, the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC) is now launching the second phase.

New Horizons is a funding opportunity for research ideas that are new, speculative and high risk with potential for high reward. The ideas should be within the remit of EPSRC’s Engineering and ICT themes. Visit the UKRI website for more information and contact details.

Applications for this phase of the pilot scheme will be assessed at outline and full proposal panel meetings, where streamlined assessment criteria will be used.

To support the delivery of this funding opportunity, EPSRC are planning panel membership now ahead of the initial outline panels in March 2022. For those not applying to this scheme, but interested in being a panel member, a survey is now open for expression of interest.
