The Royce Materials Challenge Accelerator Programme (MCAP) aims to provide short term funding to progress priority areas for innovation identified in the Royce National Materials Challenge roadmaps and landscape documents. It is open to all those working in higher education institutions, research technology organisations, and SMEs in the UK. Awards will be made to support materials-related research and technology development satisfying the requirements of this call with demonstrable potential to deliver substantial impact in UK science or society.
The research can be undertaken by individual groups or in collaboration with other organisations. Where appropriate we strongly encourage engagement with and use of Royce’s capabilities through its technology platforms located around the UK.
Funding must be used to cover staff time, supporting consumables, and travel (this is not a capital investment call).
Funding is up to £100,000 per project and up to 80% of the full economic cost (total project cost) will be covered by Royce. Funding will be awarded to the lead applicant. Additional funding support will be viewed favourably during the review stage. Royce facilities access costs, if applicable, will be remunerated at 100%.
The project must be completed by 31 March 2023. There is no opportunity for delayed claims beyond this date. Read more
