Peer Review College
Applicants are encouraged to consult with NERC at an early stage, if they are not sure whether their proposed research fits the NERC remit. An outline of the proposed research (up to two pages, including summary and objectives - form available) can be sent to email@example.com.
If NERC thinks the proposal may have multi-disciplinary cross-council elements, we will forward the outline to other research councils as appropriate, unless requested not to by the applicant.
