Independent Social Research Foundation Flexible Grants For Small Groups
Grants to support small groups of researchers to work on collaborative social sciences research projects.
The Independent Social Research Foundation (ISRF) Flexible Grants for Small Groups enable researchers from different disciplines and European institutions to form small working groups to work together on collaborative social sciences research projects. Projects across all social scientific disciplines and interdisciplinary research fields are welcome, including relevant applications from scholars working within the humanities and the natural sciences.
The awards are intended to provide flexible support over a period of one year to enable short periods of face-to-face group work, such as working in pairs, workshops or short academic visits.
Academics of any nationality based in Europe and affiliated to a European research institution may apply as Principal Investigator to lead a small group of between two and ten scholars, which may include graduate students. Applicants should hold a PhD and a permanent appointment at an institution of higher education and research (those whose sole or principal post is a part-time equivalent and independent scholars with an academic affiliation may also apply).
Awards are a maximum of £7,000 or €8,350 to cover costs such as relief from teaching and administration, research and travel expenses, or fieldwork and practical work.
Applications for the current round of the Flexible Grants for Small Groups (FG9) should be submitted via the ISRF’s online application system by the closing date of 14 October 2022.
Awards for FG9 will be announced in February 2023.
