The New Horizons programme seeks innovative, forward-thinking ideas for research to find solutions to issues of concern to the Department over the next decade or beyond. The programme is worth around £500,000 per year. Funding is likely to be up to £50K (or twelve months) for any individual project

The New Horizons Programme is an opportunity for independent researchers to identify areas where advances (to meet technological, social, environmental or economic challenges) could offer solutions to current or emerging problems. This could include where the application of techniques and ideas from one area might offer useful advances in others.
