Phase 2 of the Secondary Data Analysis Initiative (SDAI) is now open for applications. ESRC are seeking innovative and creative projects of up to £200,000 (fEC) each and with a maximum duration of 18 months. This Phase 2 call offers the opportunity to apply for self-managed clusters of several projects giving a larger network of linked grants.
This call is not thematically driven and ESRC are seeking research proposals within ESRCs remit that exploit any pre-existing data resource to deliver high quality research, knowledge exchange and policy and practitioner impact. However, proposals which address the gaps and hence opportunities in our strategic priorities would be particularly welcome.
It is a requirement of this call that proposals include non-academic partners to ensure the co-production of knowledge and to directly address the wider impact aims of the initiative. Proposals utilising international datasets and/or with an international comparative focus are also encouraged.
The closing date for full proposals is 16.00 on 26 November 2013. Proposals should be submitted electronically using the Research Councils’ Joint Electronic Submission (Je-S) form which is available from 16 August 2013.
