2015/16 Centres and Large Grants Competition

Our current plan is to announce the next Centres and Large Grants at the end of 2015. In the meantime we will continue to identify and develop the strategic priorities that will feature as steers in the Competition.

The Competition will continue to focus on ambitious and innovative research with high impact. We recognise that it takes time to prepare bids that meet these aims, particularly as Centres and Large Grants are typically inter-disciplinary and international in their scope and involve inter-institutional collaboration. For this reason we intend to extend the period available for the preparation of bids and it is likely that the closing date for applications will not be until the late Spring 2016.
