t the Convocation Hall of Westminster, to discuss key issues in relation to finance and growth in low-income countries at an event to launch the ESRC/DFID growth research programme second call on the 28th Feb. The programme funds world class scientific research on issues relating to economic growth in Low Income Countries, with high potential for impact on policy and practice. Applications are sought from across the social sciences. The programme will allow academics from developing and developed countries to work together in any configuration of their choosing, and principal investigators can be from anywhere in the world. Projects with developing country partners are strongly encouraged.
Applications will be invited for projects with a Full Economic Cost (FEC) value of £100,000 and above. ESCR/DIFD expect to fund between 25 to 30 research projects assuming an average project size of £370,000 (at 100 per cent FEC) and duration of up to three years. It is intended to announce a call for proposals on 25 February 2013. This pre-call is being announced to allow interested researchers to begin discussions with potential research partners and research users in advance of the formal call for proposals. The deadline for Outline Proposals will be 25 April 2013.
Good luck to all who want to apply!
