All research proposals to ESRC must be made electronically through the Joint electronic Submission system (Je-S). 

Accessing electronic applications

If you and your research organisation are already registered for Je-S, you can access your electronic applications via the Je-S website

Organisations wishing to register for Je-S should contact the Je-S Helpdesk using the contact details below.

Users wishing to access the Je-S system for the first time should check with their central administration on the status of the organisation's Je-S registration before creating a Je-S account. .

Please also check the RCUK information on eligibility for Research Council funding.

Applicants are strongly advised to consult both the Je-S helptext (accessed via the 'help' link on the Je-S screens) and the specific guidance notes for individual funding opportunities. Applications that do not comply with ESRC-specific requirements cannot be accepted.

Pathways to Impact for Je-S applications
