Funding opportunity

Funding opportunity: Pre-announcement: UKRI Metascience research grants

The Metascience Grants Programme will support projects using scientific methods to deepen our understanding of how different structures, incentives, and funding practices within the research and development (R&D) system shape scientific research outputs and career outcomes. Projects must have potential to inform science policy, R&D funding practices, or practice within research-performing organisations.

You must be based at a UK research organisation eligible for UKRI funding, however, collaborations between UK-based and international researchers are strongly encouraged.

This is a pre-announcement and information may change ahead of opening April 2024.
