Omics Announcement of Opportunity: Synthesis projects

Closing date: 16:00 on 19 September 2018

NERC in collaboration with the Science & Technology Facilities Council is inviting proposals for Synthesis projects in Environmental 'Omics.

The aim of the call is to support synthesis activities including workshops (project development and team-building), meetings (including direct end-user engagement), and/or laboratory exchanges, and to support piloted research work that may be necessary as proof-of-concept activities. The projects must generate tangible outputs that may range across national / international policy proposals, perspective / review articles leading to major inter-disciplinary research proposals. Activities that exploit synthesis to address issues of global importance are encouraged.

This call has a total budget of £300,000 (80% full economic cost (FEC)) and supported projects will have a maximum 12-month duration and a budget of £30,000-50,000 (80% FEC). It is expected that six to ten proposals will be supported through this call.

Full Proposal closing date is 16:00 on 19 September 2018.
