This grant supports collaborative research projects that require leadership from more than one scholar. You must include a principal investigator and at least one co-investigator jointly involved in the development and management of the project and co-authored research outputs.
You can apply for funding of between £50,000 and £1 million (full economic cost) for projects of up to five years.
We also have an early careers research grant for smaller projects with funding of up to £250,000.
Please note the announcement outlining changes to the research grants standard route. Notably the temporary closure of the scheme from 29 March 2023 and the effective for proposals submitted to us from June 2023 onwards the funding limits changing to be £300,000 to £1.5 million (at full economic cost).
In 2023 UK Research and Innovation will introduce a new grants system, the Funding Service, to replace the Joint Electronic Submission (Je-S) system. This will impact how you apply to responsive mode opportunities. Find out more about the transition timeline and our pathway for change.
