The Sustain Future Steel Manufacturing Research Hub ECR Funding

The Sustain Future Steel Manufacturing Research Hub is offering funding to Early Career Researchers from all disciplines to conduct novel research which aligns with the Hub’s two grand challenges: Carbon Neutral Iron and Steelmaking and Smart Steel Processing

Please sign up for our online Call launch event on Tuesday 19th October 2021 at 1pm

This call is open to all Early Career Researchers based in existing Sustain Hub and Spoke institutions (Swansea University, University of Sheffield and University of Warwick). This scheme has been conceived to:

  • Help stimulate new ideas in steel and sustainability research
  • Encourage high quality ECRs form other disciplines to apply their ideas and move into steel research
  • Help ECR to apply for Fellowship funding
  • Deliver research outputs not otherwise identified by SUSTAIN or achieved their current project

The Sustain Hub is looking for research proposals aligned with and complementary to our current research programme, especially (but not limited to) the following areas:

  • High Temperature Reactions and Kinetics
  • Computational Modelling and Big Data
  • Characterisation and Monitoring
  • Metallurgical Rules

More information about the scope of this call is available on the Call webpage.

This Call will launch on Tuesday 19th October, with online presentations and a Q&A session. You can register to take part, or receive a recording of this meeting here: Sustain ECR meeting registration

Please note only presentations (not Q&A) will be available to watch after the event. We welcome any questions about this call at anytime, please send them to and one of the team will be in touch.
