Follow-on Funding Call to Develop the Impact of Past Research on Landscape Decision-making

Attention all researchers who have previously received UK Research Council funding for a landscape-related project

This follow-on funding has recently been launched by AHRC on behalf of UKRI. As you may already be aware, this is one of two highlight notices commissioned as part of the cross-disciplinary ‘Landscape Decisions: Towards a new framework for using land assets’ programme funded through the Strategic Priorities Fund (SPF).

The Follow-on funding highlight notice in AHRC’s Follow-on Funding Scheme for Impact and Engagement is intended to encourage the development of proposals which will enhance the impact of arts and humanities research (including inter-disciplinary projects with a substantial arts and humanities component) funded by the UK Research Councils on decision-making related to landscape, land use and land assets.

The Ecosystems Knowledge Network for our part are highly committed to sharing and facilitating the development of interdisciplinary knowlegde. As we believe this is of significant interest to our diverse (across sectors, fields and proffessions) membership. Successful applicants may wish to get in touch with us as an ideal delivery mechanism for raising the impact of research into landscape decisions, potentially making use of our e-news distribution service and regular webinars, which often reach over 100 engaged stakeholders.

Follow-on awards under this highlight notice can be for up to £100,000 (fEC to which the Research Councils will contribute 80% fEC) and up to 1 year in duration, starting between 1 November 2019 and 1 January 2020.

Applications are invited which seek to explore new pathways to impact and to engage new audiences with the arts and humanities / interdisciplinary research conducted. Proposals will need to be proactive in building engagement between arts and humanities research and stakeholder groups with an interest in decision-making about landscape. 

The closing date for applications is 16:00 BST, Thursday 11 July 2019.
