Along with the guidance notes and commissioning brief provided above we would advise you to read the programme remit before applying. Other information useful in producing your application can be found in our resources for researchers section or through our FAQs.  

Most of the research supported by the EME Programme will follow the routine two-stage process of assessment before being funded, but where appropriate a fast-track scheme is available.
