News: ESRC-DFID launch a Follow-on-Fund call for their Joint Fund for Poverty Alleviation Research programme

25/10/2019

The Economic and Social Research Council (ESRC) and Department for International Development (DFID) are launching a Follow-on Fund call for their Joint Fund for Poverty Alleviation Research programme (‘the Joint Fund’).

This call is open to all Joint Fund Principal Investigators (PIs) and Co-Investigators (Co-Is), both past and present from Phase 3, i.e. Joint Fund grants may be open or closed at the point of application. It will focus on the following areas:

  • Area 1 - Impact Enhancement: Activities that build on and further the existing impact work of your Joint Fund grant, to develop policy relevance and research user uptake.
  • Area 2 - Cross-Grant Synthesis: Collaboration between Development Frontiers Cohort 2 researchers to synthesise research findings.

Area 1 is available to all applicants but Area 2 is only available to PIs or Co-Is from the second Development Frontiers call.

The invitation-only call is open to PIs who have held a grant funded as part of the Joint Fund programme. Co-Is from the Joint Fund programme can also apply as a PI to this call, however they must have the express support of their original Joint Fund grant’s PI.

The call closes at 16:00 (UK time) 3 December 2019.

Please check the ESRC website for full details on the call and how to apply.
