We are pleased to announce an interdisciplinary competition to identify a Champion for a Research and Innovation Centre in Industrial Decarbonisation. The Champion will act as thought leader, advocate, and strategy owner for the Industrial Decarbonisation research community.  

This call is the first stage to fund a £20 million Research and Innovation Centre as part of the Industrial Strategy Challenge Fund (ISCF) Industrial Decarbonisation Challenge. This call will provide £100,000 of funding for one successful Industrial Decarbonisation Champion six month grant followed by one £19.9 million Research and Innovation Centre which will be funded until 31 March 2024.

A core aim of this award is intended for the successful applicant to network within the research community to develop the agenda for the Centre. It is expected that the Champion will bring together a multidisciplinary community around decarbonising industrial cluster technologies and areas of policy research in order to formulate a proposal for the associated Research and Innovation Centre. Once the Centre is formed, the Champion will have a key role in leading and driving the transfer of knowledge between academia, industry and policy makers.
