The Transforming Foundation Industries Network+ has funding available for small projects of between 3 and 6 months duration. The TFIN+ is keen to attract applicants who are currently Post-Doctoral Researchers and who may wish to explore ideas that may have a transformative impact on the foundation industries (glass, metals, cements, ceramics, paper and bulk chemicals).  

Research in any discipline will be considered. This short workshop will introduce the funding scheme and hear from PDRAs currently in receipt of funding. 


IDRIC is currently planning a number of Partner events taking place over the next four months. We are working towards an in person event in June, a range of online events leading up to that as well as ramping up direct engagement with clusters.

We are currently in contact with our partners to let them know about our planned schedule. If you would like to find out more about our plans, please email
