Flexible funding call

Flexible funding call

We are delighted to announce the launch of the second of two calls for funding to encourage other researchers and partners to work in partnership with the MEITS project.

We are looking for proposals which foster innovation in research-led teaching, and which support curriculum change in modern languages in higher education (but excluding language teaching). The call is aimed at experienced, mid-career researchers (defined as 5-15 years post PhD) working in modern languages, and from institutions which are not involved in any of the four OWRI projects. A preference will be given to colleagues working in under-represented areas of the UK in OWRI, and especially Wales and Scotland.

Funds are available to: support the direct costs of research; and to enable the advancement of research through workshops or conferences, etc. Applicants may seek support for any combination of eligible activity and cost up to the overall limit of £5,000.

Level of grant: Awards up to £5,000
Deadline for submission of applications: 30 September 2018
Results expected: 30 November 2018
Earliest Start Date for Research: 01 January 2019
Grants are tenable for between 1 and 24 months.
