Annual focus for responsive mode proposals under the welfare of managed animals priority
Call status: Closed
Previous call: 8 October 2015 – 24 January 2017
Funded through responsive mode
BBSRC wishes to encourage more high quality research under its Welfare of Managed Animals (see related links) priority. We recognise that the research community in this area is relatively small in comparison to many other sectors under our strategic priorities and the number of animal welfare applications to any individual responsive mode meeting is small.
As committee membership is designed to reflect the topic areas of the applications received, we encourage all welfare applications to be submitted to a single annual closing date, consequently increasing the number of relevant experts on the committee. Please note that in addition to this focus, animal welfare applications are welcome for any future grant round.
Applications are required to fit the remit (see responsive mode grants in related links) of BBSRC and the scope of the Welfare of Managed Animals priority. The proposals applying under this closing date will be assessed in May 2017, and proposals should be submitted through the Joint Electronic Submission System (Je-S).
