EPSRC Strategic Advisory Network (SAN) Recruitment Exercise 2016

The Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC) is looking for new members for its Strategic Advisory Network.

EPSRC LogoThe EPSRC is looking to recruit around 10 respected industrialists, academics and individuals working in the third sector and government organisations to join their Strategic Advisory Network. Through this exercise, they have a particular aspiration to improve the diversity of the Network.

The EPSRC is moving towards a new delivery plan, which will include further thinking about how we deploy our three strategies (Balancing Capability, Building Leadership and Accelerating Impact) to achieve their vision for the UK to be the best place in the world to research, discover and innovate.

The Strategic Advisory Network provides the EPSRC Executive with strategic advice to develop and implement plans, and to make appropriate recommendations to EPSRC Council. The Network is a flexible resource, enabling the Executive to obtain the advice they need in a timely manner, drawing on a range of perspectives from across EPSRC's key stakeholder groups including academia, business, third sector and Government.

In a world where EPSRC is being pressed to achieve more with less, and where the Research Councils are working closer together, the input from their advisory network will be crucial.

The closing date is 07 March 2016, at 16:00.
