Early Career Researcher Workshop and Developmental Awards

The Care for the Future Early Career Researcher Workshop was held in London on 18 and 19 February 2014, and sought to support Early Career Researchers (ECRs) from a range of disciplines and backgrounds to work collaboratively and develop innovative approaches to research within the theme. Participants were asked to use this opportunity to develop innovative ideas and approaches which could be developed into research projects. Funding for Developmental Awards of up to £40,000 (fEC) plus an additional amount of £15,000 (fEC) for international costs and/or activities for collaboration outside the HE sector will be awarded. The Developmental Awards offered ECRs, as potential future research leaders, the opportunity to pursue innovative ideas and approaches for research projects inspired by the workshop, and which would make a significant contribution to the Care for the Future theme. Details of the funded awards will be released in 2014.

Science in Culture Early Career Researcher Workshop – The Lived Environment

AHRC, in collaboration with The Cluster of Excellence LABEX (France), launched this funding opportunity for transnational proposals.

The call addressed common themes agreed by both LABEX and AHRC which are of interest and relevance to both the Care for the Future and the Cluster of Excellence LABEX Pasts in Present: History, Heritage, Memory (hereinafter known as LABEX PasP). The call focused on areas where there is considered to be the greatest potential for collaborative transnational research involving UK and French scholars as well as non-academic partners. It aimed to generate new research insights, to stimulate research innovation, and to add value to existing research activities in the UK and France.

Full call details can be found on our Care for the Future and the Cluster of Excellence LABEX Pasts in the Present joint call page.
