ESRC Global Challenges Research Fund (GCRF) Centres 2016: Foundations of inclusive growth

ESRC has issued a pre-announcement of a call GCRF Centres competition 2016: Foundations of Inclusive Growth. Under this call, ESRC plans to fund two centres with up to £5M full economic cost (fEC) over five years available for each centre. The call will be announced later this month, with a deadline in September 2016.
Thematically, submissions will be encouraged to focus on the five core areas ESRC has initially identified as its GCRF contribution:

  • Dynamics of inequalities
  • Innovation and inclusive economic growth
  • Shocks, security, risks and resilience
The geographical focus of research in this call will be countries in the Development Assistance Committee (DAC) list of ODA recipients.  All proposals will have to make a clear case for how they comply with Official Development Assistance (ODA)  guidelines.
