UKRI have recently launched a cross research council responsive mode pilot scheme that will support breakthrough or disruptive interdisciplinary ideas not routinely funded through existing UKRI responsive mode schemes. It aims to:
- unlock new research, new approaches or new methods that would not emerge from established disciplinary thinking
- demonstrate reciprocal research benefits through the involvement of distinct disciplinary perspectives and spheres of knowledge
- support breakthrough or disruptive ideas and collaborations
- incentivise new and unexpected types of interdisciplinary research not routinely funded through existing UKRI responsive mode schemes
- encourage speculative, early-stage and high potential interdisciplinary research proposals, embracing new concepts, techniques, or technologies
Ahead of the university selection deadline of 1st June, join YESI to share ideas and connect with potential collaborators from across the university around YESI’s research themes: Resilient Ecosystems; Food Water and Waste, and Environment & Health.
