Very- and Ultra-High Field NMR for the physical and life sciences
Call status: Open
Application deadline: 19 September 2017, 16:00
To maintain the UK's leading position in Nuclear Magnetic Resonance (NMR) for research and development, ca. £20 million capital is being made available to procure ultra-high field NMR systems (≥0.95 GHz) and upgrade existing very-high field NMR instruments (≥800 MHz) to support the UK's fundamental and applied research across a range of disciplines within life and physical sciences.
The aim of the investment is to establish a national network of NMR provision at a range of very-high and ultra-high fields and configurations. By creating a networked national infrastructure open to researchers from both academia and industry, the highly-specialised equipment can be managed to maximise usage and outputs, and new collaborations can be enabled and supported. This investment will help to maintain UK leadership across a wide range of research in the fields of chemistry, biology and materials science.
How to apply
The Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC) is managing the call on behalf of a group of Research Councils that also includes BBSRC, Medical Research Council (MRC) and Natural Environment Research Council (NERC).
