Submission Deadline: 22nd March 2018, 16:00
Funding Available: Up to £1.25 million per network
The cross-research councils mental health network plus call has now been announced. The aim of this 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 (RCUK website) which represents their 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.
£10 million funding is available, with up to £1.25 million being awarded to between 6 and 10 networks lasting up to 48 months in duration. The call will close at 16:00 on Thursday 22nd March 2018, with interviews for shortlisted applicants in May/June 2018, and outcomes communicated in June/July 2018. Networks must commence by 1st September 2018.
