The Oxford Martin School has launched its new research call under the overarching theme of ‘Great Transitions’. Full details available here.

Expressions of Interest are invited by 5pm on 28 February 2017 on researchable questions in the areas of:

  • Digital /AI Horizons - Normative Frontiers
  • Transition to the Post-Carbon Society
  • Zoonoses and Pandemics
  • African Futures

This is primarily a partnership scheme: the School will give preference to proposals which are able to demonstrate a commitment and ability to secure matching and other funds, although the School will actively work with successful applicants to achieve this. We anticipate that the Oxford Martin School will contribute up to a total of £1million per project over a period of two to five years.

Open House meetings

The School will host an Open House meeting on each theme and hope that each session will prove a valuable opportunity to explore, in an open-minded forum, possible research programmes, meet and exchange ideas with potential collaborators, and to deepen understanding of the School and its funding process. We strongly encourage all interested in applying to attend (register). 

12 January 5pm-6.30pm: Zoonoses and Pandemics

24 January 5pm-6.30pm: Digital / AI Horizons - Normative Frontiers

26 January 5pm-6.30pm: The Transition to the Post-Carbon Society

1 February 5pm-6.30pm: African Futures

Please submit Expressions of Interest to Claire Jordan,

Requests for full proposals will be issued in mid-March, May 10th will be the deadline for full proposals, and it is hoped that final decisions will be made in June. It is envisaged that the first research teams would start work in Michaelmas term 2017.
