Two weeks left to apply for the ESRC UK in a Changing Europe commissioning fund:

The ESRC initiative on the UK in a Changing Europe aims to promote high quality social scientific research into the nature of the relationship between the UK and the EU, with a particular emphasis on making the findings of this research easily available to non-academic stakeholders. Its ambition is to become an authoritative source of expertise recognised by all sides in the debate over the UK’s relationship with the EU. Through funding academics of the highest calibre, and producing research findings in ways that are easily accessible to non-academic audiences, its ambition is to establish itself as an irreplaceable source of research based knowledge on the UK-EU relationship.

The commissioning fund has been created to ensure that funding is available in a timely manner for applicants interested particularly in pursuing dissemination and impact focused activities related to the overall aims of the initiative.
