Seventh Call for Proposals for the Open Research Area for the Social Sciences

Deadline: 17.11.2021 Programme calls

Funding agencies from France, Germany, the United Kingdom and Canada published a joint call for the international networking of the social sciences, the seventh Open Research Area in Europe (ORA) call. Funding will be provided for projects in all areas of the social sciences involving researchers from at least three of the participating countries.

Similar to the previous call, four funding agencies will participate in this seventh ORA call: the Agence Nationale de la Recherche (ANR), France; the Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft (DFG), Germany; the Economic and Social Research Council (ESRC), United Kingdom; and the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council (SSHRC), Canada. The Japan Society for the Promotion of Science (JSPS) will again work with ORA as an associate partner. Applicants to the ORA call can thus also seek partnerships with Japanese researchers.

ORA 7 will have a new format as compared to earlier ORA iterations: the call will follow a one-stage, one-application procedure consisting of a full proposal. Deadline for the submission of proposals is Wednesday, 17 November 2021, 16:00 (CET).  ANR is the coordinating agency for this round. All proposals for this call will be submitted through the ANR Electronic Submission System SIM.

In addition, the DFG will hold a webinar for potential applicants to this call on 22 September 2021, which it strongly recommends to attend. The webinar will be open to participants from around the world, and will provide information and guidance from the funders on the requirements of the call as well as an opportunity for questions and answers.

Further information can be found on the DFG's website.
