We’ve also been talking to a number of researchers in the MPLS division about their concerns regarding the EPSRC Expectations, and have been trying to address the questions we’re hearing via the EPSRC FAQ page at If you have questions about the Expectations that are not addressed here, please write to, and one of our support team will be happy to help out.
