Funding for the future

Our most direct means of achieving our mission is through awarding grants to research and education organisations. Our funded programmes related to the four strategic themes in our strategy: supporting excellent scientific research; accelerating the application of research; advancing skills and education; and promoting safety and public understanding of risk. You can see more details of the current projects in the funded programmes section.

Our approach is to be inclusive, acting as a catalyst and working with partners and others with similar aims to ourselves, focusing our funding in the areas of supporting excellent research, education and training, accelerating the application of research, and public engagement. 

We are pleased to consider new applications for funding. To find out more, you should look at the pages in this section and read the guidance notes on the application process page. If you have any queries please contact us using the form below.
