Wellcome Trust collaborative awards in humanities and social science

9 December 2015

Please see the following alert from Research Professional:

The Wellcome Trust invites applications for its collaborative awards in humanities and social science. These enable teams to tackle major health-related questions in the humanities and social sciences. Funding may be used for coordination and integration activities, network building and carrying out large-scale interdisciplinary research. Applications which propose to carry out interdisciplinary research across humanities and social science, science and innovation funding, are also encouraged.

Teams should normally consist of two to six principal applicants, each of whom has a track record of collaboration. Interdisciplinary research collaborations within the humanities and social sciences or with clinical or basic biomedical scientists, are encouraged. Collaborations may be international, and may exist within a department, across a university or spanning a number of institutions.

Awards are normally worth up to £2 million each over a maximum period of five years, with most in the range of £1m to £1.5m. Funding may cover research expenses, travel and subsistence, collaborative activity, capacity-building initiatives and research leave, symposia and dissemination activities, research management and support costs, and public engagement costs.
