The British Academy is inviting proposals for the next round of its Knowledge Frontiers: International Interdisciplinary Research Projects programme. The programme aims to support projects which engage with questions concerning the relationship between expertise, public understanding and policy delivery internationally, and highlight the importance of collaboration between communities of practice, disciplines, capacities and borders. The call is open to early career researchers, active in any discipline within the humanities or the social sciences and offers the opportunity to develop and lead international and interdisciplinary research projects.

There are no themes to this call. It is open to any research focus if it meets the international interdisciplinary focus. The Academy requires all applications to fundamentally involve and integrate both the humanities and the social sciences.

Amount: up to £300,000 (24 months duration)

Deadline: November 1st 2023, 5 p.m. (GMT).

Eligibility: The Principal Investigator (PI) must be a researcher from the humanities and social sciences and be based at an eligible UK university or research institute, but the involvement of Co-Applicants based overseas is required. At least one Co-Applicant based outside of the UK must be an early career researcher. It is required that amongst the PI and Co-Applicant(s) there is a range of disciplines from the humanities and the social sciences.

How to apply: Applications must be submitted online using the British Academy’s Grant Management System (GMS), Flexi-Grant®
