New ESRC Funding Opportunities

Two calls have been announced recently by the Economic and Social Research Council (ESRC) which will be of interest to people within the Social Sciences. More details are provided below. I will endeavour to put funding calls of interest on this site but if you aren’t linked to a university (and even if you are!) I would suggest following the brilliant blog produced by the Research and Knowledge Exchange team at Manchester Metropolitan University. Their blog can be found here.
