Collaborative Skills Developement Call

The AHRC’s Collaborative Skills Development call is aimed at supporting the development of innovative, collaborative training packages for PhD students and early career researchers in the arts and humanities. Specifically, applications should propose the development of skills within one of the following areas:

• Partnership working including public engagement
• Entrepreneurship and the Creative Economy
• Research Skills Enrichment

Proposals will be eligible from any discipline within the AHRC’s subject remit.

The 2013 call has three strands:

• The Organisation-led strand will offer funding of up to £60,000 to enable Research Organisations to offer training and skills development activities to groups of students and Early Career Researchers in several institutions, involving a variety of different partners.
• The Early Career Researcher (ECR)-led strand will offer funds up to £5,000 to support ECRs to establish and run collaborative training and researcher development activities primarily for the benefit of other ECRs.
• The Student-led strand will support doctoral students to establish and run smaller-scale collaborative activities, with an award limit of £3,000.

Proposals must be collaborative, involving at least one Research Organisation and another partner. Proposals can be led by any Research Organisation, including Independent Research Organisations, and the student and ECR-led strands are not restricted to AHRC-funded students / ECRs.

Full application guidance is now available on the AHRC website. The application form will be available via the Je-S system by the end of July and the deadline for applications is Thursday 19 September 2013.
