Secondary Data Analysis Initiative

This grant aims to support further use of existing data resources created by the ESRC and other agencies. It is open to researchers at any career stage who wish to develop their skills in using secondary data. The social sciences must represent more than 50% of the research focus and effort.

NERC urgency funding

Apply for funding to respond quickly to transient and unexpected scientific opportunities.

These may be events affecting the environment created by the occurrence of sporadic natural events such as:

  • earthquakes
  • droughts
  • floods
  • ephemeral events in ecosystems.

You must be based at a UK research organisation eligible for NERC funding.
