Proposals sought for two new funding calls under Conflict Theme
This call is now closed. The following is for information only.
The Partnership is now inviting proposals for two calls to support interdisciplinary and innovative research under its Conflict Theme.
As part of this call, academic researchers and practitioners are encouraged to explore possible collaborations through a newly established networking database, where offers for collaboration can be submitted and shared with others interested in the calls. It is hoped this will facilitate networking opportunities and lead to the creation of research groups. Current offers are now available to view and may include research partnerships, case studies, datasets and secondments.
Interdisciplinary Innovation Awards
The call for Interdisciplinary Innovation Awards (up to 18 months and up to £100,000 fEC) aims to support the development of innovative, adventurous, higher risk, interdisciplinary research, including projects at an earlier stage of interdisciplinary evolution and/or led by early career researchers.
Interdisciplinary Research Grants
The call for Interdisciplinary Research Grants (up to 48 months and between £400,000 and £800,000 fEC) aims to support innovative interdisciplinary research proposals addressing one or more of the following strands within the Conflict Theme:
- New Perspectives on the Changing Character and Mosaic of Conflict, and Transitions to and from Conflict, through Time
- Community Experiences of, and Responses to, Conflict
- Conflict in the Information Age
The funding calls are intended to support research which crosses the remits of the AHRC and ESRC. There is a common allocation of £4 million for the two calls and, in addition, the EPSRC has indicated that it would be willing to consider co-funding projects on a case by case which cross into its remit, particularly in relation to the connections between conflict and digital technologies and/or cybersecurity.
