Economic & Social Research Council: Secondary Data Analysis Initiative

Deadline for applications: 30th June 2025

The Secondary Data Analysis Initiative aims to deliver high-quality high-impact research through utilising existing data resources created by the ESRC and other agencies in order to address some of the most pressing challenges facing society.

Proposals are welcome at any time. Funding is provided for up to 24 months and is based on the full economic costs of the research, with ESRC providing 80% of the cost and the research organisation covering the balance.

Proposals can draw from the wider sciences, but the social sciences must represent more than 50% of the research focus and effort.

Additional primary (first-time) data collection will not be funded under this call.
