EPSRC would like to invite Expressions of Interest for research proposals in Autonomous Manufacturing. The aim of the call is to support research that addresses the research challenges that underpin autonomous manufacturing.
EPSRC aim to have a diverse set of research programmes that span manufacturing applications, processes, and value sectors, that exploit novel and adventurous research for the advancement of autonomous production technologies and systems in the factory environment. They will support multidisciplinary research programmes of up to five years with flexible funding of up to £10m that can be used for a mixture of multidisciplinary research projects, feasibility studies and networking and outreach activities.
This first stage of the call seeks expressions of interest to submit a full proposal. The submitted expressions of interests will be assessed at a short-listing panel in May 2015 and those that align appropriately with the scope for this call will be invited for the full proposal stage.
Deadline for EOIs: 4pm on the 16th April 2015
