Cross-Council call supports research into ageing
The AHRC is supporting a call with the Economic and Social Research Council (ESRC) and led by the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC) for proposals from interdisciplinary consortia for evidence-led research into ageing and mobility in the built environment. The call is being run under the auspices of the Lifelong Health and Wellbeing (LLHW) cross-council ageing research programme which supports research addressing factors throughout life that influence health and wellbeing in older age.
The call is seeking to create a step change in interdisciplinary engineering, social science and design research for wellbeing in the built environment. There is up to £7m available (EPSRC up to £4m, ESRC up to £2m and AHRC up to £1m) to support a maximum of five large multi-disciplinary projects of up to three years duration.
Prospective applicants will need to complete an Expression of Interest form by 12:00 on Monday 10 September 2012.
The expressions of interest will be assessed by an expert short listing panel in September 2012 and those aligned appropriately with the assessment criteria will be invited to submit full proposals. The deadline for submitting an Expression of Interest is 12:00 on 10 September 2012. Those invited to submit a full proposal will be notified by the end of September 2012. The deadline for the submission of full proposals will be 28 November 2012, and will be peer-reviewed in March 2013 with the expectation that funding decisions will be made by the end of March 2013.
