View all OPEN opportunities

This interdisciplinary joint call is funded by UK Research and Innovation (UKRI), specifically the Economic and Social Research Council (ESRC) and the MRC, in collaboration with the National Natural Sciences Foundation China (NSFC). The call invites high quality proposals between researchers in the UK and China which aim to enhance the evidence base on understanding and addressing health and social challenges facing ageing societies through interdisciplinary collaborations. The Funders will aim to recommend a balanced portfolio of projects. It is not expected that projects cover all health and social challenges.

The call is now open and the deadline for applications is 17 October 2019. Projects must be no more than 36 months in duration and successful awards will be jointly announced in March 2020. The UK funded component will need to start by 15 May at the very latest.
