IRCInterdisciplinary Research CentresThese are large research centres funded by EPSRC over a ten year period. The aim of the centres is to establish large, interdisciplinary research groups with the potential to establish critical mass and develop strong interactions with industry. The IRCs were awarded in the late 1980s and early 1990s, and the majority of existing IRCs are now coming to the end of their ring-fenced funding,.
