Productivity Project Funding is available to support new interdisciplinary directions in productivity research across the social sciences that engage partners and deliver impact. Applications will not be considered for less than £2,500, and the maximum small grant is £10,000 over six months and the pioneer grant is £50,000 over 12 months. Applications must be collaborative, with preference given for projects which are either, interdisciplinary, involve a non-academic partner, or which draw on evidence from different fields. International partners are welcome, provided there is a UK-based scholar as lead applicant.
Funds are available to facilitate initial project planning and development; to support the direct costs of research; and to enable the advancement of research through workshops or visits by or to partners. Applicants may seek support for any combination of eligible activity and costs up to the overall limit of £10,000. The PIN will assess applications equally on their merits, with no preference as to mode of enquiry, although preference will be given to priority areas and innovative projects
