The opportunities listed here are driven by NERC's approved strategic Theme Action Plans.
You can view the relevant theme action plan or any available information about each programme by clicking on the programme title. Further information on programme requirements and how to apply will be provided in the announcement of opportunity (on our funding news page, via RSS feed and on appropriate listservers).
Some research programmes will be delivered through single announcements of opportunity, while others will have recurrent or annual announcements.
This information is provided in good faith to help researchers prepare to respond to new NERC funding opportunities. However plans are liable to change, and timing cannot be guaranteed, until formal announcements are issued and proposals invited. Timing of opportunities further in the future is more tentative.
This information will be updated quarterly.
For further information contact the relevant Programme Administrator.
- NERC and its appointed Theme Leaders consult with stakeholders on how best to deliver its strategic priorities. Resulting strategic investment plans are captured in annually reviewed Theme Action Plans and approved by NERC Council. Before announcing any opportunity NERC then consults with partners and Theme Leaders to plan and specify each research programme in more detail.
