Dr Alison Wall, EPSRC's Associate Director, Building Leadership, said: "The Inclusion Matters call projects display ambition, creativity and a commitment to addressing the pressing equality and diversity issues facing engineering and the physical sciences.

"The Inclusion Matters initiative illustrates the ambitious, evidence-based approach that we will take across UKRI to strengthen equality, diversity and inclusion across the sector."

It focuses on delivering cultural change and such radical transformation requires deep institutional commitment.
