- contain a significant level of technical risk, in that there is some level of uncertainty about how the proposed technical approach will work in practice
involve companies carrying out most (if not all) of the research in-house. Projects should build a technical evidence base to enable progression to larger-scale projects.
Electronics, sensors and photonics
- devices and systems focused on industrial processing, solid-state lighting, biophotonics, communications or photovoltaics; addressing advances in functionality, performance, size or cost reduction.
- systems with intelligence and optimised control, including wireless sensing, networks of sensors and imaging.
- materials, devices, equipment, production processes, architectures, test and measurement, systems or modeling tools.
- system design and integration – embedded systems, robotics and autonomous systems, and verification and testing of computing system designs.
devices and systems for efficiently converting and controlling electricity consumption in electronic systems.
