UKRI Cross Research Council Responsive Mode UKRI Interdisciplinary Assessment College Applications Schemes

We would like to bring to your attention a couple of exciting opportunities of relevance to the STFC community.

UKRI cross research council responsive mode pilot scheme: round 1
We would like to encourage our community to engage in the pilot interdisciplinary Responsive Mode scheme, as we believe the astronomy, physics, computational science and space sciences communities can significantly add skills and knowledge to support interdisciplinary challenges within different sectors. STFC is partnering with UKRI Councils to announce a pilot funding for breakthrough interdisciplinary ideas that transcend, combine or significantly span disciplines. This pilot scheme will support ideas not routinely funded through existing UK Research and Innovation (UKRI) responsive mode schemes. Awards will be potentially transformative for the participating disciplines or lead to the creation of new disciplines.

This opportunity opens on the 8th June for outline applications, with a webinar taking place on the 13th and 22nd of June, Please find more information here: UKRI cross research council responsive mode pilot scheme: round 1 – UKRI

UKRI Interdisciplinary Assessment College applications
We would like our community to consider engaging in the peer review process, therefore we would like to highlight the opportunity to apply for the new Interdisciplinary Assessment College to support the new cross research council responsive mode pilot scheme. Applications are open to everyone with experience of interdisciplinary research, from academic and non-academic backgrounds (including business, public and third sector organisations), and from across the diverse range of roles needed for successful research (for example, technicians and professional services).
Colleagues from early, mid and late career stages are welcome to apply.

The closing date for the Interdisciplinary Assessment College is the 20th June 2023, Please find more information here: UKRI Interdisciplinary Assessment College – UKRI
