Secondary Data Analysis Initiative phase 1 - 2012
We are inviting proposals under phase 1 of this new £10.8 million initiative. The initiative will deliver high impact policy and practitioner relevant research through the deeper exploitation of the major data resources created by the ESRC and other agencies.
The first phase will fund around 20 small scale projects of up to £200,000 (at full economic cost) each and with a maximum duration of 18 months. This call is not thematically driven and proposals are welcome in any area which can generate policy and practitioner impact. However, there are significant opportunities to address key issues in our strategic priorities.
The closing date for proposals is 16.00 on 19 April 2012, with the expectation that most projects will commence in October 2012. Proposals should be submitted electronically using the Research Councils’ Joint Electronic Submissions (Je-S). Detailed guidance on the information required as part of proposals is provided in the Je-S guidance notes for applicants. All applicants should consult the ESRC Research Funding Guide, which sets out the rules and regulations governing funding.
