EPSRC Sustainable Industrial Futures Expression of Interest

Opens 27 Jun 2024

Closes 7 Aug 2024


This is a £21million EPSRC flagship investment focussed on tackling cross-sectoral research challenges rooted in excellent, leading-edge engineering and physical sciences and transdisciplinary approaches to enable the transition of UK industrial manufacturing processes and operations to net zero. Major progress is required to make significant advances in industrial emissions in the UK and EPSRC aims to drive a sustainable industrial future, shifting the UK away from environmentally detrimental industries and processes to more sustainable and circular alternatives.
