The FPRN is delighted to announce that the first round of our small grants programme opens TODAY! The Engaging with Energy Poverty in Early Career (EPEC) project aims to support Early Career Researchers and Practitioners (within the first 10 years of their career) and post graduate students with an interest in fuel and energy poverty to undertake original research or secondary analysis to advance the field and to bring forward publications (through buying time to complete analysis and write). As you will see from the call guidance, we encourage applications which promote links between academics and practitioners working in the field. You don’t have to work squarely in fuel or energy poverty to apply but your proposal must relate to the field. We are able to award around 20 grants of up to £2,500 over two rounds- the next will be launched at the same time next year. All of the information you need to apply can be found on our website at: http://www.fuelpovertyresearch.net/epec/, including suggested topics for applications. Any enquiries should be directed to our Executive Officer for EPEC, Dr. Naomi Brown (firstname.lastname@example.org). The closing date for applications is 15th January 2021. The call is open to fuel poverty researchers and practitioners anywhere in the world. We very much look forward to receiving your applications!
