ESRC have launched their Climate Change Priority area, worth £23m over the next 5 years. They are inviting applications for a Centre (£5m over 5 years) and a Network Plus (£3m over 5 years) in the first instance. Institutions can bid for either a Centre or a Network Plus. 

Coordination of activity needs to take place. Based on the number of potential applications, Division needs to decide whether we need to make a decision as to which the University applies for. Therefore, applicants will need to submit an outline case for support for both the centre and the network to Division by midday on Monday 30th April. At this point, they will ascertain demand for this call, and coordinate as appropriate.

If you are interested in applying for this, please talk to Karen or Elizabeth as soon as possible.

More details about the Call, including the Call specification, can be found on the ESRC website.
