Challenge Led Applied Systems Programme (CLASP)

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.

STFC will be launching a new call in July 2016, offering £1.5M 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 Energy and Environment sectors.

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.

To find out more about this CLASP call, you are invited to the Launch Event which will be held in the Harvey Goodwin suite of the Church House Conference Centre, London on the 5th July 2016. Further details are available here.

Closing dates

The closing date for outline applications will be 1 September 2016.
