Here are the key points from the announcement:
- Research Grants and Fellowships Schemes – AHRC will not be accepting applications between 19 March 2010 – 31 May 2010. In addition, Fellowship applicants are strongly advised to submit their applications before the end of February as the outcomes of some applications submitted in March are unlikely to be announced until spring 2011. AHRC are also rescheduling panel meetings during 2010 which may mean that applicants will not receive outcomes when they would have been expecting them.
- Research Networking Scheme – AHRC will not be accepting applications between 26 February and 31 May 2010.
- Knowledge Transfer Fellowships – The planned closing date in May will not occur. The scheme will re-open later in 2010 on an open deadline basis on a date to be confirmed.
- Knowledge Catalysts – AHRC will not be accepting applications between 26 February 2010 and 31 August 2010. This will give time to consider the outcomes of the current review of the scheme due to be completed by end of March and implement any changes in the light of the review.
