Open Research Area 8th Call for Proposals

How to Apply: 

The eighth round of Open Research Area (ORA) for the Social Sciences is based on an agreement among the Agence nationale de la recherche (ANR), France; the DFG, Germany; the Economic and Social Research Council (ESRC) of UK Research and Innovation, United Kingdom; and SSHRC, Canada.

With the goals of funding high-quality research within their own countries and strengthening international cooperation by working with some of the best researchers internationally, ANR, the DFG, the ESRC and SSHRC are launching the eighth ORA call for proposals, to fund the best joint research projects. The scheme will provide funding for integrated projects by researchers coming from at least three of the four subscribing countries.

Proposals may involve any of the disciplines, thematic areas or approaches eligible for SSHRC funding. However, disciplinary coverage varies according to which national agencies are involved. Applicants uncertain whether their proposal would be eligible should contact the relevant national agencies for clarification.
