PoC and Scoping studies

Proof of Concept and Scoping studies

The main activities of the GNOSIS network will be short term scoping studies and proof of concept studies funded through awards of up to ~£7K and ~ £30K grants respectively for successfully selected proposals.

The expectation is that these proposals are to be presented at the two themed workshops and four ’sandpit discussion sessions’ planned annually. Funding will be provided for a total of 10 small scoping studies and four PoC projects over the 4 year grant period.

Call for GNOSIS PhD studentships

STFC, through the GNOSIS Network, has been able to offer part-funded studentships for collaborative research addressing the aims of the Network. Academic institutions that are able to guarantee the missing funding are invited to apply.

The first round of applications closed January 2020.

The second round of applications opens on 1st November 2020.

These studentships aim to foster collaboration between the academic and commercial communities on projects that can translate science, technology, or expertise from the STFC programme towards the problems of space debris and traffic management.
