ESRC will shortly be inviting applications of between £1 million and £2.5 million (at 100% fEC) to take forward an exciting research agenda in the area of Trust and Global Governance. They expect to fund between two to three large grants under this theme.
Four priority areas for research proposals have been identified under this call. While proposals may exclusively focus on one area, they strongly encourage proposals to explore a range of questions within and between each of these cross-cutting priority areas:
- Trust in a world of inequalities
- Trust and the future of democracy
- Identity, community, and the social and psychological foundations of trust
- Trust, ethics and international security
The call will launch for full proposals in April 2018. The closing date for full applications will be late June 2018, with awards expected to start from Spring 2019. There will be no demand management measures in place for this call.
If you are interested in applying then please contact your RKEO Funding Development Officer in the first instance.

Academics in the UK have co-authored over 15,000 journal papers with academics in Japan between 2010-2014. Could your research lead to the next co-authored paper with researchers in Japan? In order to facilitate this, the Department for Business, Innovation and Skills and the Foreign and Commonwealth Office, through the jointly funded UK Science and Innovation Network (SIN), have compiled a list of 40 funds here where academics in the UK can submit proposals to foster research networks with academics in Japan.
