ESRC centres and institutes funding - ESRC



ESRC centres are major ESRC strategic investments, funded at £2.5 – £10 million over five years. ESRC funds these investments, as standard, at 80% of full economic cost.

In addition to taking forward an ambitious research agenda and making significant economic or societal impact, centres add value by increasing research infrastructure, building capacity, encouraging interdisciplinary working in social science and beyond, and enabling research collaboration in the UK and internationally.

Following the ESRC centres policy review we have introduced two funding tracks, for ESRC centres and ESRC institutes.
