For those researchers who wish to exploit the unique opportunities at RCaH, support can be requested under the majority of EPSRC funding schemes. Support can be requested for long- or short-term visits. An investigator can apply for long-term residence for up to 5 years, supported by a research grant or fellowship, awarded under current mechanisms. Projects supported by existing grants could, in principle, relocate some, or all, the activity to RCaH, after EPSRC has assessed the proposal. Short-term access is likely to be associated with access to the major facilities, such as Diamond, ISIS and CLF, and users can request this as part of their facility access proposal. Occasional access (less than one day) to RCaH facilities should be discussed directly with the RCaH Director or Operations Manager.

EPSRC access schemes are intended to be flexible, and operate in a responsive mode. More details can be found here.

Applicants who need further advice can contact the relevant EPSRC domain programme contact here or the Research infrastructure team (Andrew Wright).
