Summary on Grant Application Form
The Capital Award Support for Early Career Researchers at the University of Leeds aims to align with EPSRC's World Class Labs initiative to provide key underpinning capital equipment of benefit to early career academics in particular across a wide range of research disciplines. The award will closely align with the capital investment strategy of the University of Leeds in providing flagship technologies to capitalise on challenge-led interdisciplinary research, create new funding opportunities and deliver impact.

Four items of capital equipment are proposed which fulfil a need across multiple Schools and Faculties, benefiting Early Career Researchers as well as the wider academic community. The items, which are primarily spectroscopy and microscopy equipment, will each fill a unique gap in terms of range and/or resolution in our current facility capabilities.

The University is matching the EPSRC Award through a contribution of £225K enabling the four items to be purchased, each co-funded by the EPSRC and the University.
