As the UK’s national academy for engineering, we bring together the most successful and talented engineers from across the engineering sectors for a shared purpose: to advance and promote excellence in engineering.
We are interested in research projects that have the potential for a UK wide impact. Due to the limited funds available, we are unable to support proposals that examine the effectiveness of small scale interventions (e.g. at an institution module or programme scale).
This year, the Academy is particularly interested in research projects that seek to address and understand the challenges of migration (including the potential impact from restrictions on freedom of movement for EU citizens) to engineering skills supply.
Beyond this specific areas of interest, we are looking for proposals that will examine issues around any of the following areas of our strategic aims:
- Under-representation of all kinds in engineering
- Innovation and structural change in education, training, recruitment and retention of engineers and technicians
- Transforming the effectiveness of engagement activities that bring an understanding of and aspiration for engineering to young people
- Promoting the importance of environmental, economic and social sustainability in engineering practice and education
These subject areas are not exclusive and we welcome other proposals that meet the Academy’s strategic aim of addressing the UK’s engineering skills challenge.
The Research Projects in Engineering Education is now open for applications: Deadline is 5pm Monday 8th April.
