Expression of Interest: ESRC Next Generation Services Research Programme - London

Event details
Tuesday, 22 May 2018
13:00 pm – 16:00 pm
Industrial Strategy Challenge Fund Event



In May 2018 the ESRC, on behalf of UK Research and Innovation, is planning to announce a research programme call on Next Generation Services under the Industrial Strategy Challenge Fund. The call will invite proposals for interdisciplinary research grants of up to £1.5m (at 100% fEC) over a maximum term of three years, focused on working with business to identify the potential opportunities offered by the application of new technologies in the high value services sector (specifically the Accountancy, Legal Services and Insurance industries).


The ESRC will be holding a series of events for potential applicants to the Next Generation Services Research Programme to find out more about the objectives and expectations of the Call and to provide an opportunity for academic networking and collaboration. Attendance at these events is not a requirement for submitting a proposal but is strongly advised.

Other events in this series:

Belfast, Monday 21st May
