As part of EPSRC’s website changes, they have announced that there will be new features surrounding online academic communities. This will allow users to create accounts, sign up to call alerts and funding news and create their own personalised profile. Other features will include setting up an e-newsletter for key information relevant to your areas of interest, as well as general customisation of content across the site.
This feature has been created with the mind to offer networking and discussion possibilities in the future, allowing communication across the site in relation to specific topics. These features will be available incrementally over time, with account creation and personalisation the first stage of this process.
