Opportunity profile: British Academy’s road to China

For the first time, the British Academy’s Small Research Grants include a scheme co-funded by the Chinese Academy of Social Sciences. Ken Emond and Sara Kathrada from the British Academy tell Sophie Inge more.

Ken and Sara’s top tips

  • Highlight the benefits of collaboration and be clear about what both sides bring to the project.
  • Bids should focus on a primary research project but can include networking events and other collaborative exercises.
  • Make sure you outline convincingly the feasibility of the proposal; a good research idea alone will not be enough to win.
  • Strive for clarity and accessibility in the bid and especially in the abstract.
  • Make sure your project can start within the dates specified by the academy.  

The British Academy is offering two Small Research Grants in partnership with the Chinese Academy of Social Sciences (Cass) to support collaborative research in any field of humanities or social science involving one UK-based and one China-based researcher.
