UKRI Interdisciplinary Circular Economy Coordinator
UK Research & Innovation (UKRI) invites proposals for the Interdisciplinary Circular Economy Coordinator. Up to £150k (at 80% FEC) is available for this initial grant to engage with the full spectrum of interdisciplinary research and stakeholder communities and design a proposal for an Interdisciplinary Circular Economy Hub, with up to £3.3m available at the second stage for the Coordinator to lead the integration Hub.
UKRI are running a concurrent call to establish Interdisciplinary Circular Economy Centres, each focused on a different nationally-important resource flow. The Hub will be expected to work with the Centres (and vice versa), to integrate the overall programme. Details of the Centres call are available; we recommend that potential applicants read both call documents to familiarise themselves with the scope and format of the overall programme.
UKRI will be running two webinar sessions to give potential applicants to both calls an opportunity to learn more about the programme. These will run on 17 October 11.00-12.30 and 22 October 13.30 – 15.00.
The webinars will cover:
- Background Information
- Vision and Objectives of both Calls
- Eligibility and Funding Restrictions
- Assessment Criteria
If you would like to attend, please register your interest by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org identifying which webinar you wish to attend. Both webinars will cover the same information. The deadline for registration will be 24 hours before each webinar.
