Summary on Grant Application Form
The University of York operates globally, aiming to be among the best universities in the world. It aims to provide an environment that attracts and retains the very best researchers, internationally, to encourage and facilitate academic endeavour, and provide a supportive atmosphere for the development and sharing of knowledge. It continuously seeks to improve this research environment in pursuit of excellence.

Early Career Researchers (ECRs) are a vibrant part of our research community, driving innovation and delivering research leadership. Across the various departments in receipt of EPSRC funding, there are ca. 200 ECRs who would be eligible for support via this award. There is substantial appetite from these ECRs for additional capital expenditure to extend the research infrastructure, and the additional capacity and capabilities afforded by new equipment represent a significant opportunity to promote further collaboration and development across the ECR community.
