ACCESS scopes funding areas for ESRC

Published on 13 June 2023

One of the ways ACCESS is enabling social scientists to play an influential, leading role in addressing environmental challenges is through our work with the Economic and Social Research Council (ESRC). ACCESS is engaging with ESRC to provide strategic input into the development of emerging research priorities and the inclusion of social science within interdisciplinary ideas across UK Research and Innovation (UKRI).

In 2022, ACCESS provided high-level insights from the community and produced the first scoping report that helped shape a call for research funding published by ESRC in early 2023.  This focused on place-based approaches to sustainable living.
