This call has now closed
We received 11 proposals in total across a broad spectrum of topics, following an extensive review and ranking process the following proposals were chosen:
- PI: Hamid Assadi, Brunel University London : Manufacturing of lightweight structural components for high performance electrical machines by electromagnetic pulse technology (EMPT)

The EPSRC Future Electrical Machines Manufacturing (FEMM) Hub is offering 3 awards up to the value of £50,000 each (80% fEC) to support Feasibility Studies at TRLs 1-3. The feasibility call is open to all UK academics eligible to receive EPSRC funding and whose institutions are not currently involved with the FEMM Hub (for a list of our current partners please click here). Proposals are envisaged to have a duration of 6-12 months and maximum value of £62,500 at full Economic Cost (fEC), with funding to be awarded at 80% of fEC. Our first call is the primary mechanism for new academic collaborators to engage with the FEMM Hub and if successful could potentially provide a springboard to larger follow on funding.
