New Horizons for research through new adventurous research projects – The University of Manchester

Dr Golovanov, who leads this research, said: The ability to deliver significant amount of light, at any wavelength, within extremely constrained geometry of the NMR instruments allows us to look in real time at any phototransformations as they happen in front of our eyes in the NMR tube. It can be anything photoreactions, photoenzymes, photo-controlled conformational switches or nano-machines anything.

New Horizons forms part of UKRIs wider Reforming our Business agenda to simplify and streamline processes and practice across the organisation.

Elsewhere at The University of Manchester, Professor Catherine Powell intends to develop new algorithms for forward uncertainty quantification, which allows us to understand how uncertain inputs in mathematical models affects predictions of outcomes of interest. This could have a transformative effect on a wide range of engineering applications involving physics-based models.

EPSRCs 2019 Delivery Plan highlighted the desire to continue promoting excellence in research by investing in new approaches to delivery that are optimised to the specific researcher base and research outputs desired.

Science Minister Amanda Solloway said:It is critical we give the UKs best researchers the resources to drive forward their revolutionary ideas so they can focus on identifying solutions to some of the worlds greatest challenges, such as climate change.

This government funding will allow some of our brightest mathematicians and physicists to channel all their creative ingenuity into achieving potentially life-changing scientific breakthroughs from mathematics informing how we save our rainforests to robotics that will help track cancer faster.

EPSRC Executive Chair, Professor Dame Lynn Gladden, said:New Horizons reflects EPSRCs commitment to funding creative, transformative and ambitious new ideas across our portfolio. In this pilot, we have funded more than 100 projects in the mathematical and physical sciences.

The scheme also piloted a new, simplified applications process designed to minimise the administrative burden of submitting grant applications, thereby enabling researchers to focus on developing their research ideas.

The call for proposals attracted a very positive response in terms of both the number and quality of applications and we look forward to exploring how to include the approaches taken through New Horizons in further areas of our portfolio.
