Funding Calls

The Consumer Data Research Centre Innovation Fund

The Consumer Data Research Centre is pleased to invite proposals from UK-based academics for projects that will capitalise on our core consumer data sets, extend our network of partners, and drive forward substantive and innovative social science research across a broad range of disciplines and research areas.

We welcome proposals that would contribute to our existing CDRC research themes (described in section 3 of this call), as well as extensions into other research areas of strategic significance, including those aligned with the ESRC’s priorities in:

  • Mental Health
  • Housing
  • Productivity
  • Understanding the Macro-Economy
  • Ways of Being in a Digital Age

Projects will run from early October 2017 and must be completed no later than the end of September 2018.

The Centre is looking to fund in the region of 8-10 projects, each valued at between £20,000-60,000 (100% fEC).

Proposals should be submitted to by 1700 hrs UK time on 31 July, 2017.
