How to Propose Research Work?
We review hundreds of research suggestions each year. If you have a challenge or have identified an opportunity that you think might be overcome with research and requires industry to come together, then don’t hesitate to propose research.
Please refer to our ‘Research scope and remit’ page for more information about the sorts of activities that can be pursued. Key requirements are that the activity should be generating new knowledge or resolving an uncertainty, be supported by industry but not able to be pursued by individual organisations and have a realistic chance of technical success and take-up.
Once submitted, your research idea will be logged and reviewed. You may then be invited to an Idea Development Meeting to discuss the feasibility, scope and progression of the research you are proposing.
If you don't have a specific challenge you are looking to address, but would like to better understand, and help shape our future research agenda, then you can either get in touch with the team to discuss or learn more about the cross-industry groups that help govern and steer our portfolio.
