How to submit your application - ESRC


UKRI Funding Service applications

In 2023 UK Research and Innovation (UKRI) introduced a new grants system, the Funding Service, to replace the Joint Electronic Submission (Je-S) system. This will impact how you apply to funding opportunities. Find out more about the transition timeline and our pathway for change.

From 2023, applicants to the Economic and Social Research Council (ESRC) and other councils are applying via the UKRI Funding Service rather than via the Joint Electronic Submission (Je-S) system.

UKRI’s principles of assessment and decision making will continue to underpin our peer review policies and processes during and after the transition to the UKRI Funding Service.
