Closing Date: September 27,2011:

The Department for International Development (DFID) and Economic and Social Research Council (ESRC) are pleased to announce a third call for applications under Phase 2 of their strategic partnership to provide a joint funding scheme for development research. The latest call is part of an ongoing drive to fund high quality research that helps us to achieve the Millennium Development Goals. This third call keeps an overall 'poverty alleviation' theme from previous rounds and applications under this heading are still eligible.
However, the ESRC and DFID have identified three areas for this call where work will be of particular interest. These are:
  • Measuring development
  • Information and communication technology (ICT) and development
  • Resource scarcity, growth and poverty reduction
Apply now
Applications are invited for projects with a Full Economic Cost value of between £100,000 and £500,000.
The scheme is open to UK and non-UK researchers based in higher education institutions, research organisations and organisations with a credible research capacity.
