Following the publication of the Administrative Data Taskforce report Improving Access for Research and Policy (PDF, 1.1Mb), the ESRC will be inviting proposals for a major investment in the new Administrative Data Research Network.
There will be two forthcoming calls:
- for the Administrative Data Research Centres (ADRCs) in each of the four regions in the UK
- and for the Information Gateway (IG) for ADRCs. Applications will be invited from research organisations eligible for Research Council Funding.
Applicants should be aware that the ESRC is currently in discussion with the statistical authorities in the UK to confirm their role in the new Network – with anticipation that they may become commissioning partners with the ESRC. Applicants should avoid approaching the statistical agencies about forming collaborations until full details of these calls are published.
Full details will become available 5 June 2013.
Potential applicants can register to attend a Bidders’ Information Event to be held in central London 13 June 2013. Those interested in attending should pre-register their details
