British Academy – ODA International Interdisciplinary Research Projects

Closing Date: 01/11/2023

Funding available for UK-based early career researchers working with international partners wishing to develop ODA-eligible interdisciplinary projects involving both the humanities and the social sciences.

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 new international interdisciplinary research that is ODA-eligible. Research may be problem-focused, creatively innovative and exploratory, and should bring together relevant disciplines in both the humanities and social sciences, where appropriate, for maximum impact/effect.

The Academy requires all applications to fundamentally involve and integrate both the humanities and the social sciences.

The aim of this call is to support international collaborations between early career researchers in the UK and early career researchers in Brazil, Egypt, Indonesia, Jordan, Kenya, Malaysia, Philippines, South Africa, Turkey, Thailand, Vietnam and/or Least Developed Countries on internationally focused ODA-eligible research projects of an interdisciplinary nature involving the humanities AND social sciences.

There are no themes to this call other than the research must be ODA-eligible.

The Academy envisages that the awards made through the Programme will:

  • Provide opportunities for early career researchers based in the UK and internationally to lead and manage international interdisciplinary research projects and teams
  • Enable early career researchers based in the UK and internationally to gain experience and develop their skills in international research, international collaboration and cross- and interdisciplinary research developing their research and career for the future
  • Advance the research field, knowledge exchange, practice and/or policy development in their chosen area
  • Develop ways of communicating and collaborating in cross-disciplinary and multilingual working, in partnership with colleagues internationally.
