  • UKRI encourages multidisciplinary research and collaborations with other UK organisations
  • UKRI welcomes applications from individuals at any career stage, subject to NERC eligibility criteria

Applications including partners in Brazil or Taiwan may be eligible for co-funding from São Paulo Research Foundation (FAPESP) or National Science and Technology Council (NSTC), respectively.
