NERC wishes to build on its previous investment in PURE (Probability, Uncertainty & Risk in the Environment) Associates by awarding innovation funding to support new projects which have arisen due to the successful collaborations established through the PURE Associates funding call. It is anticipated that proposals will build on the outcomes of the PURE Associates projects or be based on new opportunities which have arisen as a result of the collaboration.
Applications should clearly indicate what additional benefits could be delivered to the stakeholder organisation as a result of continued or new collaboration and how this has arisen from the original investment through the PURE Associates funding call.
NERC has up to £450k available for this call, and are looking to support three or four substantial projects (up to 18 months) which develop solutions to improve risk assessments, support decision-making and enable better management of natural hazards risk by business, policy-makers or NGOs.
The closing date for applications is 16:00 on Wednesday 19 June 2014
