UK Research and Innovation (UKRI), via the Economic and Social Research Council (ESRC), is inviting outline proposals for research grants of up to £2 million (at 100% fEC) for a period of up to 36 months.

The Healthy Ageing Social, Behavioural and Design Research Programme (SBDRP) is part of the ISCF Healthy Ageing Challenge portfolio of activities. The SBDRP will provide £9.5m (100% fEC) to fund interdisciplinary academic-led teams to carry out research into social, behavioural and design aspects of healthy ageing. The Programme will contribute to the Challenge mission to, ‘ensure that people can enjoy at least five extra healthy, independent, years of life by 2035, while narrowing the gap between the richest and poorest’ by enhancing our understanding of the aspirations, preferences and needs of the ageing population. Funded projects may address, but are not limited to, the impacts of the CoVID-19 pandemic on social, behavioural and design aspects of healthy ageing. Projects will also be expected to make a significant contribution to disseminating this knowledge, helping to inform innovators and positively influence market behaviours.

This is a two-stage call. Outline proposals must be submitted via UKRI’s Joint electronic Submissions (Je-S) system by 16:00 on 7 July 2020. Proposals will then be assessed by a Panel and shortlisted applicants will be notified of their success and invited to submit a full proposal. See full commissioning timetable for more information. Proposals must be led by an academic who is based at an eligible UK research organisation.
