We are looking for creative and ambitious research proposals which clearly address a ‘real world’ macroeconomic question. At this stage, the research may look to establish a ‘proof of principle’ project which, if successful, leads to a further funding application. We welcome applications with genuinely new and even risky projects that fall outside of the usual funding criteria. We especially welcome proposals which incorporate inter-disciplinary insights and apply new methodologies to macroeconomics.

  • Specific Research Hub Calls

General Research Call

This year’s first General Research Call is now closed. Our next call will commence Autumn 2018 (See below for further information or subscribe to our newsletter)

We are looking for research funding applications for projects that address a substantive ‘real world’ macroeconomic issue, but which may fall outside the scope of one of our proposed Research Hubs. Applicants who submit projects that we consider to be better suited to one of the Research Hubs will be invited to re-submit once the Hub makes its research calls.

We invite proposals of between £20,000 and £150,000. Please note that we fund 86% full Economic Cost of a project. The deadline for submission of the first stage of the application process was Wednesday 1st November 2017. This funding opportunity will be re-opened in each of the first three years of Rebuilding Macroeconomics between 1st September and 1st November. The next General Research Call will take place on 1st September, 2018.

Guidance for the funding process can be found here.  The stage 1 application form can be found here.

Specific Research Hub Calls

Specific Research Hub Calls will be issued by the Research Hub Leaders in consultation with the Management Team. While the Specific Research Hub Calls can be found in the Research Hub areas of the website, they will also be links posted below.
