Cross-disciplinary mental health network plus call

Closing date: 16:00 on 22 March 2018

The research councils are pleased to announce the cross-disciplinary mental health network plus call.

The aim of the call is to encourage the creation of multi-disciplinary networks that cross the remit boundaries of the research councils. These networks will address important mental health research questions that require an innovative, cross-disciplinary approach to accelerate progress; to build cross-disciplinary research capacity in the field; and to strengthen the UK mental health research base.

The call has been informed by the research councils recently published cross-disciplinary mental health research agenda - external link which represents our collective interest in supporting and furthering mental health research. It encourages areas where high quality cross-disciplinary research could add the most value and impact to the broader mental health research landscape through novel and transformative research.

Successful applicants will receive a grant of up to £1·25 million (at 100% full economic cost (FEC)) for up to 48 months' duration. The research councils will contribute 80% FEC on successful proposals.

The call for network plus proposals closes at 16:00 on 22 March 2018.

Further information on the call specification and how to apply can be found on the ESRC website - external link.
