The research councils are pleased to announce the cross-disciplinary mental health network plus call.
The aim of the call is to encourage the creation of multi-disciplinary networks that cross the remit boundaries of the research councils. These networks will address important mental health research questions that require an innovative, cross-disciplinary approach to accelerate progress; to build cross-disciplinary research capacity in the field; and to strengthen the UK mental health research base.
The call has been informed by the research councils recently published Cross-disciplinary Mental Health Research Agenda (RCUK website) which represents their collective interest in supporting and furthering mental health research. It encourages areas where high quality cross-disciplinary research could add the most value and impact to the broader mental health research landscape through novel and transformative research.
Successful applicants will receive a grant of up to £1.25 million (at 100% full economic cost (fEC)) for up to 48 months' duration. The research councils will contribute 80% fEC on successful proposals.
How to apply
All proposals must be made through the Joint Electronic Submission (Je-S) system. Proposals must be costed and approved by the relevant institutional authority at the research organisation before submission.
The call for network plus proposals closes at 16:00 on 22 March 2018.
