ESRC – Ideas on Research Priorities for Northern Ireland Economic Policy

Closing Date: 16/06/2022

Funding available to develop research priorities for economic policy through the ‘ADR UK: Business Data for Research (BDR) Northern Ireland’ programme.

ESRC are looking to fund projects which use the ‘ADR UK: Business Data for Research (BDR) Northern Ireland’ programme to address research priorities covering areas within the Department for the Economy’s ‘10X Economy’: an economic vision for a decade of innovation.

The de-identified datasets are being made available to a small number of research teams through this funding opportunity to:

  • Enable beta testing of the BDR in advance of making the dataset available to wider researchers
  • Provide feedback on the quality of documentation created by the Northern Ireland Statistics and Research Agency (NISRA) such as the metadata, synthetic data and other resources
  • Inform the future development of the BDR including identifying a programme of making future data available to all Administrative Data Research (ADR) UK researchers and increasing the volume of data from BDR that researchers can access.

This is the first time NISRA is making this data available in the UK.
