STFC Challenge-Led Applied Systems Programme (CLASP) (deadline: 7th November 2017)

Science & Technology Facilities Council (STFC) External Innovations runs a Challenge Led Applied Systems Programme (CLASP) to support the application and commercialisation of STFC research in the key global research challenge areas of energy, environment, healthcare and security. Individual annual calls are aligned to specific challenge areas.

STFCSTFC launched a new call in September 2017, offering £2M to fund a range of projects from short feasibility studies to large developmental projects that will use STFC funded research to solve key challenges in the Healthcare sectors. Priority challenge areas identified by the Healthcare focus group are described here.

There is a two stage application process for CLASP. Applicants are invited to submit a short outline, which is assessed by the CLASP panel. Short listed applicants are then invited to develop a full proposal with the assistance of CLASP panel members assigned as mentors.

The launch event for the call was held on 22 September 2017 at the Royal College of Physicians, London, NW1 4LE. View the programme and presentations.
