AHRC Follow-on Funding for Impact and Engagement Scheme: Highlight Notice for AHRC's Four Themes

Return to opportunities

Summary

The AHRC is pleased to announce this Follow-on Funding for Impact and Engagement Scheme (FoF): Highlight Notice for AHRC's Four Themes. This highlight notice seeks to encourage innovative applications that seek to explore new, unanticipated, pathways to impact which have emerged or evolved from research undertaken under AHRC’s four Themes: Science in Culture; Translating Cultures; Digital Transformations; and Care for the Future. The overall aim of the highlight notice is to strengthen the impact and legacy of the Themes.

FoF projects funded under this highlight notice will be expected to form a part of the relevant Theme’s portfolio of projects and will be expected to contribute to the aims, objectives and legacies of the Theme. It is anticipated that this could include contributing to a number of activities being planned by the Theme Leadership Fellows for 2018 which will reflect on the achievements, outcomes and legacies of the Themes.

Additionally, we are particularly keen to encourage applications which are led by or involve early career researchers who have been involved in the Themes. Applications submitted under this highlight notice could, for example, provide early career researchers with opportunities to develop their experience of leading projects, collaborative working beyond academia, and undertaking knowledge exchange and pathways to impact activities.

Highlight notices are offered as opportunities within existing AHRC research schemes and are intended to stimulate proposals addressing strategic priorities or emerging research areas in order to encourage innovation, new thinking and/or the development of collaborations in these areas.

Closing Dates

Closing Date: 26/04/2017

The application form for highlight applications will be available in Je-S from Monday 13 February 2017.

In order to be considered under this highlight notice applications must be submitted by research organisations before 1600hrs on Wednesday 26th April 2017.

How to make an application

You should submit your proposal using the Research Councils' Joint electronic Submission (Je-S) System.

The form will be available from 13th February 2017. To prepare a proposal in Je-S log-in to your account and choose New Document, then select 'AHRC' as the Council, 'Standard Proposal' as the Document Type, ' Follow-on-Funding for Impact and Engagement’ as the Scheme, select the relevant AHRC Theme( Care for the Future; Digital Transformations; Science in Culture; Translating Cultures) as the Call/Type/Mode and then 'Create Document'.

Je-S will then create a proposal form, displaying the relevant section headings. Using the 'Help' link at the top of each section will provide guidance relevant to that section of the form.

 

Note that clicking 'submit document' on your proposal form in Je-S initially submits the proposal to your host organisation's administration, not to AHRC. Please remember to allow sufficient time for your organisation's submission process between submitting your proposal to them and the Call closing date.

Applications should address the aims of the Highlight Notice as outlined in the call document. In addition to the normal requirements for the Follow-on Scheme, applications submitted for consideration under this highlight notice must include a paragraph at the start of their case for support explaining how their proposal meets the aims and focus of the highlight notice, and in particular how the proposed impact / engagement activities build upon research funded as a part of one (or more) of AHRC’s Themes and would contribute more broadly to the Theme(s) and its/ their legacy.

Please ensure you read the complete Highlight Notice document before beginning your application.
