Faraday Institution energy storage projects
This funding call seeks to identify researchers, based at UK Universities and qualifying Research Organisations, to progress at least one of the following six major research projects funded by the Faraday Institution: Degradation, ReLib, SafeBatt, SolBat, LiSTAR, Multi-Scale Modelling (MSM). In doing so it aims to enhance the skills and innovation brought to the projects through participation, from an increased pool of UK talent whilst building upon its investment to date.
As part of a reshaping process, the Faraday Institution is inviting short, costed proposals for new topics with tightly defined research scopes that complement the core research of the following projects:
- Battery Degradation
- Multi-scale Modelling
- ReLiB, recycling and reuse of batteries
- SOLBAT, solid-state batteries
- SafeBatt, science of battery safety
- LiSTAR, lithium-sulfur batteries

We strongly encourage researchers not currently funded by the Faraday Institution to apply.
Investigators must be academic employees – lecturer or equivalent – of an eligible organisation and must be resident in the UK. Any fellows holding fellowships aimed primarily at the postdoctoral level are not eligible to apply.
Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC) fellows, Royal Society fellows and Royal Academy of Engineering fellows holding fellowships aimed at later career stages are eligible to apply.
Holders of fellowships under other schemes should contact the EPSRC to establish eligibility. This may be given on an individual case by case basis rather than as blanket eligibility for all fellows under any scheme.
