|Funding Call – Knowledge Frontiers: International Interdisciplinary Research 2022 The British Academy is inviting proposals from UK-based researchers in the humanities and social sciences wishing to develop international interdisciplinary projects in collaboration with colleagues from the natural, engineering and / or medical sciences, focusing on the question, “what is a good city?” |
Aims The British Academy encourages broad and innovative interpretations past and present, physical and imaginary in the context of “what is a good city”, and how these topics relate to international questions and challenges. The Academy is looking to fund applications that break new ground in the collaborations – international and interdisciplinary – they support and the research they aim to undertake. The Academy is seeking to support projects that build understanding internationally across different forms of knowledge and expertise – academic, professional and lay – on challenges surrounding modern urban environments. The Academy particularly encourages applications led by scholars in the humanities.
Eligibility requirements The lead applicant must be a researcher from the humanities and social sciences and be based at an eligible UK university or research institute. The lead applicant must be of postdoctoral or above status (or have equivalent research experience). Projects must involve at least one co-applicant from the natural, engineering and / or medical sciences. Collaboration between researchers in different institutions is encouraged, where appropriate, given the nature and aims of the programme, and applications may include co-applicants and other participants from overseas.
Value and duration The Academy offers awards of up to £200,000 for 24 months in duration with Full Economic Costing at 100 per cent. Projects must begin in March / April 2022 and finish in March / April 2024.
Application process Applications must be submitted online using the British Academy’s Grant Management System (GMS), Flexi-Grant®. The deadline for submissions and UK institutional approval is 29 September 2021 (17.00 UK time).
