ICMS Funding Opportunities

The International Centre for Mathematical Sciences in Edinburgh is funded by the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC) to support research in all areas of the mathematical sciences and its connections to other disciplines and industry. Proposals are externally refereed and organisers are encouraged to contact ICMS to discuss their proposal before the final submission.

January 2021:  ICMS has received significant additional funding from EPSRC and we will be introducing new schemes and opportunities to enhance the UK Mathematical Sciences landscape. These include:

  • A visitor programme for researchers from LMIC countries to come to the UK to attend workshops and fund their stay for up to three months. The second strand of this programme will allow participants at ICMS workshops to extend their visits in the UK;
  • ICMS@: this programme will allow organisers to hold their ICMS-funded activity at venues elsewhere in the UK; 
  • Activities focussing on the transition from taught to research degrees;
  • Our popular and successful research workshop and Research-in-Groups programmes will be expanded.

Please contact Jane Walker in the first instance to discuss your proposal for any of the research schemes.

Please contact Dawn Wasley to discuss your proposal for any Knowledge Exchange activities.

If you have your own funding in place ICMS will be very happy to host a workshop for you and provide administrative support.  Please contact Jane Walker to discuss your requirements.

ICMS is now accepting proposals for the following:
