Deadline- 20 April,2012

The scheme has funded a diverse range of high quality work so far but the Independent Review of Phase 1 -(a further group of projects will be funded in 2012). The aim of the joint scheme is to provide a more robust conceptual and empirical basis for international development. It also aims to enhance the quality and impact of social science research which contributes to the achievement of the Millennium Development Goals and the shaping of the post-2015 agenda. Both funders have a strong commitment to commissioning world class research and ensuring that the resulting evidence is useful to stakeholders and policy makers.

  • The ESRC and DFID welcomes applications from researchers, normally located in a Higher Education Institute. Researchers in non-HE institutions, for example from government departments or from the third sector are also invited to apply. Researchers may be based in either UK or non-UK organisations with recognised research capacity.
  • Applications from non-UK institutions are welcome. Applications from teams of people are also welcome.
