Highlight topics ideas invited for environmental solutions to COVID-19

19 June 2020

NERC invites highlight topic ideas (strategic funding for research and innovation) to encourage environmental solutions that learn from the COVID-19 pandemic, and in doing so support the UK environment, economy and society to recover from COVID-19 legacy challenges.

The 2020 cut-off for highlight topics will be re-opened until 16:00 BST 23 July 2020 for this purpose.

Ideas received by the previous 14 May 2020 cut-off will be considered alongside the new ideas submitted. New submissions NOT related to COVID-19 legacy challenges will not be considered.

Guidance on how to submit a highlight topic idea and more information about the NERC ideas series on environmental solutions for COVID-19 is available on the NERC website.
