Call for Cross-disciplinary Innovation Grants: Understanding the diversity and impact of Transnational Organised Crime
Award offers for the 11 Innovation Awards under the Transnational Organised Crime Theme have now been announced.
The Partnership has issued a call for cross-disciplinary and innovative research projects that will extend our understanding of how transnational organised crime has evolved through time and in different cultural contexts, why and how it extends across borders, what impact it has on populations and sustainable international development, and effective ways of preventing and mitigating its impact.
The call will fund research and networking activities which address transnational organised crime from a range of cross-disciplinary approaches and research perspectives. Applications are therefore invited for innovative cross-disciplinary collaborative research projects which cross the remits of the AHRC and the ESRC. Where appropriate, proposals may also involve collaboration with engineers and physical scientists.
Applications are invited for grants of up to £100,000 (100 per cent fEC). Projects can be up to 18 months in duration.
The deadline for proposals is 16.00 on 30 March 2016.
To support applications to the call, the Partnership has established a database to facilitate networking opportunities between academic researchers across disciplines, and between academic researchers and practitioners.
