ESRC: Research Seminars Competition
The Economic and Social Research Council (ESRC) invites applications for its research seminars competition. Seminar groups are multi-institutional groups of academic researchers, postgraduate students and non-academics who meet regularly to exchange information and ideas with the aim of advancing research within their fields. Where appropriate, seminar group members should be drawn from industry, government departments and other relevant national and international organisations as well as from UK research organisations.
The competition aims to create networks and bring people together from a range of disciplines, countries and career stages to find some common ground theoretically and methodologically. The council particularly encourages groups explicitly designed to bring together leading researchers from across disciplines to identify new agendas or capacity building priorities.
Funding is available for UK research organisations eligible for research council funding. Proposals should include international collaboration embedded within each project.
ESRC expects to make approximately 50 awards of up to £30,000 for a minimum duration of two years and a proposed number of three seminars per year.
