SPF Landscape Decisions: Towards a new framework for using land assets – Re-issued Follow-on Funding Call

Return to opportunities


UK Research & Innovation are inviting applications to calls funded through the Strategic Priorities Fund (SPF) Landscape Decisions: Towards a new framework for using land assets programme. AHRC is a partner in this cross-disciplinary Programme and is pleased to announce the following re-issued ‘highlight notice’ call:

Follow-on Funding Call to Develop the Impact of Past Research on Landscape Decision-making.

This re-issued highlight notice in AHRC’s Follow-on Funding Scheme for Impact and Engagement is intended to encourage the development of follow-on proposals which will enhance the impact of arts and humanities research (including inter-disciplinary projects with a substantial arts and humanities component) funded by the UK Research Councils on decision-making related to landscape, land-use and land assets. Applications are invited which seek to explore new pathways to impact and to engage new audiences with the arts and humanities / inter-disciplinary research conducted. Proposals will need to be proactive in building engagement between arts and humanities research and stakeholder groups with an interest in decision-making about landscape.

Further details about this call can be found in the FoF call document attached below. The closing date for applications is 16:00 BST, Thursday 21 November 2019. Follow-on awards under the highlight notice can be for up to £100,000 (fEC to which the Research Councils will contribute 80% fEC) and up to 24 months in duration, starting between 1 January 2020 and 1 February 2020. Subject to the quality and fit of the applications received, we anticipate funding in the region of 10-12 follow-on projects through this highlight notice.

Closing Dates

Closing Date: 21/11/2019

How to make an application

Applications must be submitted using the Research Councils’ Joint electronic Submission (Je-S) System (https://je-s.rcuk.ac.uk/) no later than 16:00 BST on Thursday 21 November. Applications will need to go through the appropriate institution submission process, ensure you leave enough time for this.

The Je-S application form for this call will not be available until 23 September 2019. Applicants should not start an application on the system before this date.

To prepare a proposal form in Je-S:

  • log-in to your account and choose ‘Documents’ from the menu;
  • then select ‘New Document’;
  • ‘AHRC’ as the Council,
  • ‘Standard Proposal’ as the Document Type;
  • ’Follow-on Funding for Impact and Engagement’ as the Scheme;
  • ‘Follow-On Funding Highlight Notice Changing Landscapes 21 November 2019’ as the Call/Type/Mode and
  • ‘Create Document’.

Je-S will then create a proposal form, displaying the relevant section headings. Using the ‘Help’ link at the top of each section will provide guidance relevant to that section of the form.

Note that selecting 'Submit document' on your proposal form in Je-S initially submits the proposal to your host organisation's administration, not to AHRC.
