Open Research Area (ORA) for the Social Sciences 2019
The sixth round of ORA is based on an agreement between the Agence Nationale de la Recherche (ANR; France), the Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft (DFG; Germany), the Economic and Social Research Council (ESRC; UK) and the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council (SSHRC; Canada).
In order to strengthen international co-operation in the field of social sciences, wishing to fund high quality scientific research within their own countries, and aware that some of the best research can be delivered by working with the best researchers internationally, ANR, DFG, ESRC and SSHRC are launching a sixth ORA call for proposals in order to fund the best joint research projects in social sciences. The scheme will provide funding for integrated projects by researchers coming from at least three of the four subscribing countries – in any combination of three or more countries. Please note that the Netherlands Organisation for Scientific Research (NWO; Netherlands) will not be participating in this sixth ORA Call – for further information see in Dutch and in English.
Proposals may be submitted in any area of the social sciences.
Thank you for expressing an interest in the ORA 6 call 2019.
Please note that the call is now live and further information can be found on the following website: https://esrc.ukri.org/funding/funding-opportunities/open-research-area-ora-for-the-social-sciences-2019/
There will a webinar for potential applicants to this call on 3 July 2019 which we strongly encourage to attend. The webinar will be open to participants from around the world, and will provide information and guidance from the funders on the requirements of the call as well as an opportunity for questions and answers. To allow for different time zones we will be holding two identical webinars at 10.00 (UK time) and 15.00 (UK time), which will each last approximately one hour. Spaces will be limited, so we encourage you to register your interest early to avoid disappointment by emailing ORAQueries@esrc.ukri.org. When registering your interest please indicate whether you wish to join the morning or afternoon webinar, and we would ask those in UK and European time zones to be flexible where possible. Registration for the webinars will close on 21 June 2019.
For specific eligibility criteria, terms and conditions of participation, and additional specific guidance for applicants please contact your national contacts for further details. All generic queries relating to this call should be directed to the call Secretariat email ORAQueries@esrc.ukri.org.
