Restricted Call: ESRC Centres (internal deadline: 01 February 2023)
Following on the attached pre-notification about the ESRC Centres call, this is to announce that the internal selection process for the scheme has now opened.
Although the funder has not published the full details for the call yet, it is anticipated that no major changes will be introduced this year – as a result, the University’s internal selection process will be driven by the scheme’s previous rounds (e.g., please see call announcement for 2020). The deadline for the internal selection process has been brought forward following feedback from the community – this is to allow more time to the successful applicants to prepare strong applications for submission to ESRC.
The ESRC Centres scheme has always been the funder’s flagship funding opportunity. ESRC Centres are world-leading centres of excellence that carry out interdisciplinary, cutting-edge, and impactful research in the social sciences and beyond that drives forward innovations in theory, methods, and techniques.
