Funding opportunity – ESRC responsive mode: secondary data analysis round two
The Economic and Social Research Council (ESRC) is offering funding of up to £300,000 (full economic cost) to support research that exploits existing data resources for social and economic research. Applicants have considerable flexibility to focus on any subject area or topic that falls within the ESRC’s remit.
This funding opportunity also aims to develop the capacity and skills of social sciences communities in using large and complex existing data resources. ESRC encourages partnerships with non-academic stakeholders to ensure generation of high-impact, policy- and practitioner-relevant research. Proposals can draw from the wider sciences, but the social sciences must represent more than 50% of the research focus and effort.
Ambitious and novel research proposals addressing new concepts and techniques are encouraged, as are those with the potential for significant scientific or societal and economic impact. Fresh ideas from new researchers are also encouraged, and proposals are welcomed from early career researchers.
