Background and scope

Funding typically supports integrated research projects requiring long timescales, extensive resources and/or multidisciplinary approaches.

Proposals must be over £2M (FEC project value net of any industrial contribution) and can be up to 5 years in duration.


Research funded through a strategic LoLa must:

  • Be scientifically excellent
  • Demonstrate exceptional relevance to one or more of our strategic priorities
  • Demonstrate an understanding of the potential for impact
  • Be conducted by an internationally leading research team

All proposals must be within our scientific remit. Multidisciplinary proposals are encouraged but potential applicants are strongly advised to contact us (email contact below) beforehand to discuss their application if aspects of the proposal are outside our remit.
