This programme provides UK-based researchers at any career stage, and active in any discipline within the social sciences and the humanities, with an opportunity to develop and lead international interdisciplinary.

 About the position

  1. The British Academy is inviting proposals for projects which focus on the interaction between technology, nature and humanity.
  2. The intersection between technology, nature and humanity is key to many of our most pressing international challenges, from climate change and ecosystem disruption, to migration and sustainable population growth, to the role and understanding of new technologies in society.
  3. The British Academy welcomes proposals for projects which bring together new knowledge collaborations to address issues facing individuals, communities and societies, and lessons that can be learnt from such issues that have been faced in the past.
  4. Applications may consider how nature and technology are understood across different societies, and how this understanding is embedded in culture, historical practice, and social infrastructures.
  5. Applications are encouraged to bring together different communities of expertise, for example academic, professional, business, lay, or community. Projects could bring together different forms of collaboration, between lived experience, modelling, and data science.
  6. The purpose of each project will be to develop new international research ideas.
  7. The Academy is looking to fund applications that break new ground in the collaborations – international and interdisciplinary – they support, and the research they aim to undertake.
  8. The Academy particularly encourages applications led by scholars in the humanities.
