NERC wishes to award innovation funding to facilitate the take up of NERC science and expertise by the oil and gas industry. NERC is very keen to enhance, and better demonstrate, the impact of its investments.
This innovation call is intended to develop new partnerships and collaborations between researchers and the oil and gas industry and to build on existing partnerships and collaborations, as part of the development of the programme.
NERC has up to £1m available for this call, and is looking to support around 10-12 proposals. Funding is for short-term projects of 6-12 month duration with the majority of money being spent in 2014/15.
