We are creating a unified UKRI website that brings together the existing research council, Innovate UK and Research England websites.
If you would like to be involved in its development let us know.

Theme Large Grants

We are currently inviting Outline Proposals for the AHRC Large Grants call under the themes of Digital Transformations, Science in Culture and Translating Cultures. Funding of between £1m and £2m is available to facilitate innovative, collaborative research across arts and humanities disciplines and beyond. The Large Grants provide an opportunity to develop ambitious, transformative research agendas and strategic partnerships between Research Organisations and across disciplines, sectors and internationally. This is just one of a range of planned funding opportunities within the themes, and other activities will be announced in due course.

Details of a call for Large Grants under the Science in Culture, Digital Transformations and Translating Cultures themes are now available (Care for the Future is operating on a different timetable and currently has a highlight notice in AHRC’s Research Grants scheme for projects up to £1.5m).

Successful proposals under the Large Grants call are expected to support research activities of a scale and ambition beyond that normally required for a standard AHRC grant. They should display significant transformative potential within the relevant theme area.

Funding for each grant awarded will be between £1m and £2m (fEC) over a period of between 36 and 60 months. Approximately 2-4 Large Grants are expected to be funded under each theme (subject to quality and overall balance within the theme).

Please see the Themes section of the website for further details of this call.
