EPSRC Inclusion Matters
EPSRC inclusion matters includes eleven project that have been launched at universities across the UK to improve equality, diversity and inclusion within engineering and the physical sciences. The projects have been funded with £5.5 million from EPSRC via the Inclusion Matters call, the first initiative of its kind which has been launched as part of the collective approach by UK Research and Innovation (UKRI) to promote equality, diversity and inclusion.
Our project collaborates with the STEMM-CHANGE EPSRC inclusion matters project, which aims to change culture and practices in equality, diversity and inclusion (EDI) in Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics and Medicine (STEMM).
