MRC/AHRC/ESRC Adolescence, Mental Health and the Developing Mind: Call for Research Programmes

Please note this opportunity is now CLOSED.
View all OPEN opportunities

The Medical Research Council, the Arts and Humanities Research Council and the Economic and Social Research Council invite outline proposals for innovative and ambitious interdisciplinary programmes of original empirical research in adolescence, mental health and the developing mind. This £24M call will support a range of substantive flagship programmes, each of up to 4-year duration and up to £4M.

Please note that the funders will be holding a webinar for applicants to provide information and guidance on this call as well as an opportunity for questions and answers. We would encourage all potential applicants to attend either of the following dates:

  • 10:00 on Tuesday April 21st, 2020.
  • 14:00 on Thursday April 30th, 2020.

Please contact AdolescentMentalHealth@mrc.ukri.org for more information and to register for this event. We expect the webinar to last no longer than one hour. 

UKRI is aware that the ongoing situation regarding coronavirus will significantly impact the development of outline proposals. We have therefore made the decision to extend the timeline for this call by 3 months. The new deadline for submission of outline proposals is the 15th September 2020 (and not June 2020 as stated in the pre-call announcement).

Please note: The mandatory workshop for successful outline applicants will take place on Wednesday 18th November.
