Notice Abstract

UKRI Interdisciplinary Circular Economy Centres UK Research & Innovation invites outline proposals for Interdisciplinary Circular Economy Centres. Up to £22.5 million (at 80% FEC) is available to support up to five Centres for up to four years from 1 October 2020. Proposals are invited for Interdisciplinary Circular Economy Centres, each conducting interdisciplinary research that accelerates understanding and solutions to enable circularity of a resource flow (materials, material systems, products and/or services), including consideration of (multi-) sector contexts. UKRI welcomes and encourages applications led by and involving any discipline – and not only disciplines within EPSRC’s remit. The UK has potential to grow and prosper sustainably by transitioning to a more circular economy, where resources are processed with sustainability, waste minimisation and efficiency in mind, and where product lifecycles are optimised to generate more economic and social value before recycling and/or reuse. However, this transition requires clear, evidence-based, implementation pathways, with broad underpinning research evidence. It must provide not only technical, technological and scientific advances, but also the social, behavioural, cultural, ethical, environmental, economic, legal and regulatory understanding required to support a successful transition. To address this, the £30 million UK Research and Innovation (UKRI) Interdisciplinary Circular Economy programme will be delivered by the Arts and Humanities Research Council (AHRC), Biotechnology and Biological Sciences Research Council (BBSRC), Economic and Social Research Council (ESRC), Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC), Natural Environment Research Council (NERC), and Innovate UK. This fund will support the creation of up to 5 interdisciplinary research centres, and a Coordinator who will lead an integration hub.
