Open Research Area 6th Call for Proposals

Posted by Jaq-Lin Larder on June 17, 2019 in Research Funding

The sixth round of the Open Research Area (ORA) is based on an agreement among the French National Research Agency (ANR; France), the Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft (DFG; Germany), the Economic and Social Research Council (ESRC; UK) and the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council (SSHRC; Canada). The scheme will provide funding for integrated projects by researchers coming from at least three of the four subscribing countries. There is also a special opportunity for co-operation with projects in Japan.

Proposals may involve any of the disciplines, thematic areas or approaches eligible for SSHRC funding. However, the disciplinary coverage varies according to the involvement of the national agencies. Canadian applicants can request up to $135,000 per year for a maximum of $400,000 over 2-3 years.

ESRC is the coordinating agency for this round. All relevant documentation for this funding opportunity are available on the ESRC’s website. Researchers are also invited to consult SSHRC’s website for guidance and additional information regarding SSHRC specific eligibility criteria and terms and conditions for participation.

For more information, please contact Shelley Brown, Manager, Institutional Programs.
