The ESRC and AHRC will shortly be launching a further call for inter-disciplinary innovation awards under the Partnership for Conflict, Crime and Security Research (PaCCS) focusing on Conflict and International Development. This call is funded from the initial allocations the AHRC and ESRC under the Global Challenges Research Fund (GCRF) and a core focus will therefore be on conflict-related research which has the potential to contribute to the economic development and welfare of developing countries.
In order to support innovation, the call will be open to applications which address any topic of relevance to the PaCCS conflict theme provided that they are focussed on conflict and human security in developing country contexts (at a community, national, regional or global scale) and its interconnections with issues of international development.
Projects may be up to a maximum value of £100,000 fEC and up to 18 months in duration, commencing in November 2016. They expect to fund approximately 8-12 projects through this call.
