The Economic and Social Research Council (ESRC) is delighted to announce additional funding of £3.19 million for the UK in a Changing Europe (UKICE) hub based at King's College London and £4.3 million for nine new Senior Fellows for the UKICE initiative. The hub will run for a further three years and the fellowships will run for up to three years.
Led by Professor Anand Menon, the UKICE initiative aims to promote rigorous, high-quality and independent research into the complex and ever-changing relationship between the UK and the European Union, and to provide an authoritative, non-partisan and impartial reference point for those looking for information, insight and analysis about UK-EU relations that stand aside from the politics surrounding the debate.
The ESRC, as part of UK Research and Innovation, invited proposals from UK-based academics for senior fellowships to work as part of UKICE; this will be the third round of senior fellowships under the initiative.
The nine new Senior Fellows include Professor Sarah Hall, University of Nottingham (Brexit and the UK’s financial services sector).
The new Senior Fellows are academics of the highest international standing in their field. While their role is focused mainly on impact, dissemination and the synthesis of existing research, they will also have the opportunity to undertake new research where appropriate.
