Grant Codes


These grant reference numbers are to be used by EPSRC funded students when applying for EPSRC-related training events and for citations if publishing in a journal or other media. To find your grant number: if you started at any point during the academic year, say, September 2009 to August 2010, your grant reference number would be the one for 2009-2013 which is EP/P505208/1 .

For information on how to use the number for citations, please see the text below:

'Publications and other forms of media communication, including media appearances, press releases and conferences, must acknowledge the support received from the Research Council(s). A standard format has been agreed for acknowledging funders in journal articles. This is to enable improved tracking of the publications generated by funded research projects.

For articles published in journals, or deposited in institutional or subject-based repositories, the acknowledgement of funding should take the form of a sentence as in the following example, with the funding agency written out in full, followed by the grant number in square brackets:

'This work was supported by the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council [grant number xxxxx].'

Multiple grant numbers should be separated by comma and space. Where the research was supported by more than one agency, the different agencies should be separated by a semi-colon, with "and" before the final funder.

For example: 'This work was supported by the Wellcome Trust [grant numbers xxxx, yyyy]; the Natural Environment Research Council [grant number zzzz]; and the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council [grant number aaaa].
