The ESRC have launched a UK in a Changing Europe call for Brexit Priority Grants. These are to support additional activity (including research synthesis and potential new short-term research activity) related to the process of the UK leaving the European Union.

The grants will be between £100,000 and £300,000 (100 per cent fEC, with the ESRC contributing 80 per cent fEC) and for a duration of up to 18 months. The ESRC expects grants to commence on 1 April 2017.

Whilst grants under the call will be able to support new research, grant holders will be expected to undertake stakeholder and public engagement activity throughout the grant’s duration. Grant holders will also be expected to work closely with the UK in a Changing Europe initiative, led by Director Professor Anand Menon in communicating the research.

Further information are available on the ESRC's call page.
