ESRC NCRM International Visitor Exchange Scheme launched

The National Centre for Research Methods (NCRM) has launched its International Visitor Exchange Scheme (IVES). This will fund visits of between one and three months to or from experts at the forefront of key methodological developments. The scheme aims to enable “UK social scientists to engage with methods development internationally, in order to stimulate debate and develop ideas (with associated outputs) in relation to methodological innovation in the social sciences.” Awards can begin from 1 January 2016, with a deadline for submissions of 25 September 2015. Up to 6 awards of £5000 are expected to be available.

For more information, please see http://www.ncrm.ac.uk/research/IVES/ and, if you are interested in applying, please contact a member of the Funding Development Team.

Social science researchers – help identify strategically important methodological research areas

This will inform a call for proposals for new methodological research projects in 2015. The projects will form parts of a Centre with funding of £5million in total.
