The survey to help guide materials-focused workstreams across EPSRC will close on 11 April 2024.

The priority areas provide a framework through which EPSRC can address cross-cutting and community challenges, and enable them to address specific aspects of skills, or to catalyse and accelerate societal and economic impacts.

This is an opportunity for individuals to help shape the advanced materials landscape through EPSRC, informing their delivery activity and priorities.

Individuals are offered an opportunity to share their views in this short survey.

The next steps will be holding online workshops and roundtables on opportunity areas identified through the survey in the coming months.

The research council wants to identify the next set of research and societal challenges that have the potential to transform materials research, and its potential for impact, over the next 10 years.
