If you are a UK-based researcher, you can apply for funding to work with overseas researchers in Luxembourg. Collaborative work on any area of the social sciences is governed by an agreement between UKRI and Fonds National de la Recherche.
The new investigator grant supports early career researchers and academics to become independent researchers through gaining experience and skills in managing and leading research projects and teams.
The social sciences must represent more than 50% of the research focus and effort.
The UKRI-SBE lead agency opportunity allows UK and US-based researchers to submit a collaborative proposal that will go through a single review process. Grants are funded through existing funding programmes at the relevant lead agency.
These fellowships are for those looking to return to a research career after a break. Fellowships combine a personalised retraining programme with a challenging research project. They are flexible, usually lasting two years at 0.5 full-time equivalent, although some UKRI funders may award longer.
Individuals and research teams can apply for funding at any time to support standard research projects, large-scale surveys, infrastructure projects and methodological developments. Focus can be on any subject area or topic within ESRC’s remit. Social sciences must represent more than 50% of the focus and effort.
