British Academy Knowledge Frontiers Programme 2023 Opens to Applications

The British Academy is providing a call for proposals for UK-based researchers across all disciplines within the social sciences and the humanities to develop international interdisciplinary research projects.

The British Academy is keen to support and work with proposals that build new research insights and collaborations across and between disciplines in the humanities and the social sciences.

For this year’s funding round, the Programme will focus on the theme of ‘Global (Dis)Order’.

The Academy envisages the awards made through the Programme will:

  • By such understandings of Global (Dis)Order bring to bear a deeper, more nuanced, and historically aware thinking to the topic
  • Identify the contributions that could be made to international and national knowledge exchange, practice and policy development in this area and what lessons can be learnt to navigate any future landscape(s)
  • Develop ways of communicating and collaborating in cross-disciplinary and multilingual working in partnership with colleagues internationally.

The lead applicant must be a researcher from the humanities or social sciences, be based at a UK university or research institute and be of postdoctoral or above status (or have equivalent research experience).

Co-applicants based overseas are required.

Awards are available for up to £200,000 for 24 months in duration (with Full Economic Costing at 80%).

Applications must be submitted online by the deadline of 19 October 2022 (5pm BST).

Applicants are advised to submit applications at least 5 days prior to the deadline to allow for institutional approval.
