The ESRC is now receiving applications for new project funding as part of their Secondary Data Analysis Initiative. Funding is provided for up to 18 months with an overall limit of £200,000 (100 per cent fEC) per grant. Proposals will be considered by a new Grants Assessment Panel (GAP) that will meet for the first time in July 2016. Funding will be available for around 20 proposals a year.
The call specification is open for the secondary analysis of key ESRC-funded data resources and infrastructure, either in conjunction with other datasets or on their own and that administrative data is one of the eligible ESRC-funded data resources. If you would like further advice on administrative data that might be available then please do not hesitate to contact myself or the Administrative Data Service (www.adrn.ac.uk).
