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.

Current opportunities


As part of the implementation process of the cross-UKRI  decision to remove the Pathways to Impact Attachment and Impact Summary section for Research proposals (effective from 1st March 2020),  we have now removed all references on the AHRC Website related to the Pathways to Impact attachment and updated all our core Funding Call Guidance Documents to reflect the changes.

As these changes are taking place over a period of a week we would strongly encourage applicants not to submit proposals to our open Calls (Research Grants, Research Grants Early Career, Leadership Fellows, Leadership Fellows Early Career, Follow on Funding for Impact and Engagement and Research Networking) during the period 24th February to 29th February.

If you do need to submit to one of our open Calls during this week we are aware that the changes may not be reflected in Je-S immediately, therefore, if you are submitting your application to us within the period of 24th February – 1st March we would ask you to contact the AHRC prior to submission via our general enquiries number or email address
