The research councils are pleased to announce the cross-disciplinary mental health network plus call.

The aim of the call is to encourage the creation of multi-disciplinary networks that cross the remit boundaries of the research councils. These networks will address important mental health research questions that require an innovative, cross-disciplinary approach to accelerate progress; to build cross-disciplinary research capacity in the field; and to strengthen the UK mental health research base.

The call has been informed by the research councils recently published Cross-disciplinary Mental Health Research Agenda (RCUK website) which represents their collective interest in supporting and furthering mental health research. It encourages areas where high quality cross-disciplinary research could add the most value and impact to the broader mental health research landscape through novel and transformative research. 

Successful applicants will receive a grant of up to £1.25 million (at 100% full economic cost (fEC)) for up to 48 months' duration. The research councils will contribute 80% fEC on successful proposals.

How to apply

All proposals must be made through the Joint Electronic Submission (Je-S) system. Proposals must be costed and approved by the relevant institutional authority at the research organisation before submission.

For further information about the call, including call documents and FAQ, please see the ESRC website.

The call for network plus proposals closes at 16:00 on 22 March 2018
