UKRI-JST Joint Call on Artificial Intelligence and Society

This call aims to foster collaboration between UK and Japanese social science, arts and humanities researchers around the theme of Artificial Intelligence and its impact on society. The call aims to promote interdisciplinary and transdisciplinary research and to position the social sciences, arts and humanities as an integral part of the process for developing and exploring AI systems, and ensuring that those systems provide the greatest benefit to people and societies. Ultimately, the call aims to contribute towards the development of a platform for effective and sustained dialogue and engagement between a range of researchers and other relevant stakeholders, eventually leading to practical implementation and policy recommendations.

The total UK budget for this call is £2 million. UK applicants may request between £360,000-£500,000 (100% fEC) per project. If successful, UKRI will meet 80% of the full economic costs and the host institution is expected to support the remaining 20%. The total Japanese budget for this call is ¥180m. Japanese applicants may request up to ¥30m per project. Together we expect to fund between five and seven joint proposals for a period of three years. 

Please note that proposals will be funded under this call subject to the UK funding being secured from the Fund for International Collaboration.
