Summary on Grant Application Form
World leading research requires well equipped laboratory infrastructure. This funding will enable the latest equipment to be provided at Durham University to the upcoming generation of researchers across the broad spectrum of the EPSRC research remit. Through an internal peer review process, Early Career Researchers (ECRs) will be provided with the latest equipment with which to undertake their research. This will enable them to produce high quality publications, work with industrial contacts through access to the latest equipment, leading them to establish their careers more rapidly. ECRs will write short proposals for the equipment items they require and these will be internally peer reviewed and the applicants interviewed as part of the decision-making progress. This will not only ensure the best research is supported at Durham, but also help stimulate equipment sharing as well as providing the ECRs with the experience of grant writing and a peer review interview.

Overall, the funds will enable an increase in world leading physical and engineering science and help to establish the next generation of world research leaders.
