ESRC offers travel grants for Secondary Data Analysis Initiative
The Economic and Social Research Council of the United Kingdom is offering travel grants between the United States and the UK to potential applicants to its Secondary Data Analysis Initiative. The goal of the travel grant is to help facilitate and develop collaboration between potential UK and US project partners. Ten travel grants are available at a maximum of £1500 (about $2,300 US) for researchers in the US to travel to the UK, or vice versa. The deadline for expressing interest (this should come from the UK project partner) in a travel grant is Feb. 14, 2012 and all travel must be completed by March 31, 2012.

The Secondary Data Analysis Initiative is a new program from ESRC, the first phase of which will fund about 20 small-scale projects (of 18-months duration and £200,000, or approximately $316,000 US). The aims of the projects are to deliver high-impact policy and practitioner relevant research through deeper exploitation of major data resources of ESCR and other agencies. For more information, click here. The deadline for applying for these grants is April 19, 2012. Another round of grants is expected to commence in October.
ESRC holds numerous long-running studies and surveys such as the British Household Panel Survey and the European Social Survey, which will form the foundation of the Secondary Data Analysis Initiative. A detailed Call Specification document (PDF) is available *here*.
