The Arts and Humanities Research Council and the Economic and Social Research Council have published a pre-call announcement for the next round of the Partnership for Conflict, Crime and Security Research fund.
The next round of the fund, known as PaCCS, will focus on conflict and human security in the context of developing countries and will be funded through the AHRC and the ESRC’s contribution to the £1.5-billion cross-government Global Challenges Research Fund. This requires proposals to meet the Department for International Development’s Official Development Assistance criteria.
The call, which will open in the week beginning 16 May, is looking to support higher risk interdisciplinary research projects that are at an earlier stage in their collaborative partnership. These could include pilot studies or feasibility/proof of concept studies, the councils said. Proposals from early-career researchers will also be welcomed.
Projects lasting up to 18 months can be awarded up to £100,000 and need to start work in November.
The AHRC has said that it expects to fund between eight and 12 projects through this call.
Full details of the call will be published on the AHRC website later this month.
