The Faraday Institution is in the second stage of a process of refinement for the four initial Faraday Institution funded research areas:
The Expression of Interest call that fed interested parties into the refinement process is now closed. After an independent review of the EOI submissions all applicants have been informed whether their application was successful and therefore whether the current project Principal Investigator will invite them to join the bidding consortium as a Co-Investigator.
The second stage in the project refinement process is a submission and review of full proposals. The full proposals will outline how the reformed projects will be expected to lead application inspired research, building on the foundations of the three years of investigation already performed, to strengthen the UK’s position in electrochemical energy storage research and make UK industry more competitive. These research projects are not intended to be ‘business as usual’ - they are to be fast paced, focussed projects, delivering transformative results for UK industry. The proposals will set out a two-year ambition, outlining how outputs could be commercialised, whether directly out of the projects themselves or via collaboration with industry partners.
The Faraday Institution has issued a request for a full proposal from the four current project Principal Investigators, which are due on 21st July. Final proposal call document. Final proposal application form.
Assessment of the full proposal will be via peer review by an independent group of international experts, with the review panel to be held in August 2020.
