Open Research Area Call: Five Countries to Collaborate in 13 Projects

Researchers in Canada, France, Germany, the UK and Japan collaborate on the social sciences and further strengthen international cooperation

The nature of society and equality across age groups, industry, habitats and public policy are among 13 exciting new projects. Funded by the Open Research Area for the Social Sciences (ORA), which aims to minimise bureaucracy in international research, the projects are delivered by the Agence Nationale de la Recherche (ANR; France), Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft (DFG; Germany), Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council (SSHRC; Canada) and UKRI Economic and Social Research Council (UKRI ESRC; UK).

They will associate with the Japanese Society for the Promotion of Science (JSPS), who, as in the previous ORA rounds, have already established a process for Japanese researchers to participate in complementary projects.
