The ESRC is making funding available for UK research organisations to hold Research Seminars for groups of academic researchers, postgraduate students and non-academic users from different organisations including the public sector, commercial private sector and civil society sector. Seminar groups designed to bring together leading international researchers and stakeholders from across disciplines to identify new research agendas or capacity-building priorities are particularly encouraged.
Seminar groups meet regularly to exchange information and ideas with the aim of advancing research within their fields.
These grants are non-fEC and are limited to £30,000. This covers:
- justified travel and expenses for speakers and participants
- justified secretarial costs
- justified project specific stationery, postage, copying and telephone costs
- justified hire of rooms and facilities (when the host institution or other collaborating organisation cannot provide these facilities).
Closing date for applications is 16.00 on 28 January 2014
