ESRC – early indication of priority areas for Centres and Large Grants

Leave a comment


ESRC plan to announce the next Centres and Large Grants competition in late March 2016. This grant scheme provides £2m – £10m for projects which focus on ambitious and innovative research with high impact, typically inter-disciplinary and international in their scope and involving inter-institutional collaboration. The Call itself will therefore be applicable to a very limited audience but what you might like to know is that they currently have the following “steer” or priority areas under consideration:

  • Mental health
  • Understanding the macro-economy
  • Productivity
  • New ways of living and working in the digital age.
