Discovery Science

NERC's discovery science (responsive mode) funding stream supports excellent environmental research that is driven by curiosity rather than by NERC's wider strategic priorities.  There are two deadlines each year (late January and July). The standard grant scheme also includes a route for new investigators.

Demand management measures come into effect from the July 2015 closing date.  Research organisations must ensure they do not submit more proposals to the round than are permitted.

Independent Research Fellowships

The Independent Research Fellowship Scheme is designed to develop scientific leadership among the most promising early-career environmental scientists.  Closing date is usually in the autumn.
