British Academy Moving to Flexi-Grant from August 2017

british_academy_logo-300x55

The British Academy has announced the implementation of its new Grants Management System, Flexi-Grant, which is currently being developed, and will replace the e-GAP2 system from 1 August 2017.

The main difference between the two systems is the requirement for referees to provide their references before an application can be submitted and approval given.

Flexi-Grant will go live on 1 August 2017 using a phased approach and the estimated timetable for opening calls for various schemes is listed below:

August 2017:

Mid-Career Fellowships call opens

Postdoctoral Fellowships call opens

September 2017:

BA/Leverhulme Small Research Grants (Round 2017-18) call opens

Tackling the UK’s International Challenges (tbc)

GCRF: Sustainable Development Programme (tbc)

October 2017:

BA/Leverhulme Senior Research Fellowships call opens

British Academy Rising Star Engagement Awards call opens

April 2018:

BA/Leverhulme Small Research Grants (Round 2018) call opens

Pre-call announcement: 4th HERA Joint Research Programme

The Humanities in the European Research Area (HERA) Network are pleased to announce the implementation of a new Joint Research Programme “Public Spaces: Culture and Integration in Europe” (HERA JRP PS).

The aim of the HERA JRP “Public Spaces: Culture and Integration in Europe” will be to deepen the theoretical and empirical cultural understanding of public spaces in a European context. The programme has been designed to facilitate a broad range of cultural approaches to conceptualising public space, its structural and processual formations, and its possible outcomes in terms of, for example, integration, exclusion, disintegration, fragmentation, hybridization, amalgamation or transmission.

Collaborative research projects under this topic should explore the dynamics through which public spaces shape, and are shaped, by cultural activity, and how various forms of dis/integration can be understood in relation to such spaces.

The expected publication date of the Call for Proposals for humanities-led proposals to this HERA Joint Research Programme is 24 August 2017, with the deadline for submitting Outline Proposals on 24 October 2017.

For more information, please visit the AHRC.

Are you considering the AHRC/EPSRC ‘Next Generation Immersive Experiences’ call? Please let RKE know

AHRC 2     EPSRC

There seems to be quite a bit of interest in the recently announced AHRC/EPSRC Research Partnership Development Call for the next generation of immersive experiences and it was great to see so many people attend the AHRC event in Geoffrey Manton last week.

We’ve been asked a few times about whether there is a limit on the number of bids Manchester Met can submit to this call. The answer is ‘No’ – there is no formal cap. However, we think its sensible to keep an eye on the emerging ideas and get a sense of the number of  potential applications, so, if you are thinking of a bid would you please let RKE know?

MMU New Logoresearchfish® logo colour.jpg

 

 

 

Manchester Met has achieved 100% compliance with its ResearchFish submission in 2017.

ResearchFish is an online survey that collects research outcomes. Funders use the tool to track the impacts of their investments, and academics use it to log outputs arising from funded research. Over 100 funders, including the seven UK Research Councils, currently use ResearchFish collecting submissions from universities across the country.

For the second year running, Manchester Met has achieved 100% compliance with its ResearchFish submission. This means that all researchers required to report against their funded research completed their submission before the submission period closed on 16th March 2017.

Due this achievement, our researchers’ fantastic work will soon be available to view on Gateway to Research. It also means that potential sanctions from late submissions have been avoided.
