Large Grants


The 3 AHRC Large Grants awarded as part of the Science in Culture Theme aim to facilitate innovative, collaborative research across arts and humanities disciplines and the sciences.

Large Grants provide the opportunity to develop ambitious, transformative research agendas and strategic partnerships between Research organisations and across disciplines, sectors and internationally.

Successful proposals under the Large Grants call are expected to support research activities of a scale and ambition beyond that normally required for a standard AHRC grant. Large grants are expected to be highly collaborative across institutions, across disciplines within the arts and humanities and sciences, with partners outside the Higher Education sector (e.g. private, public, third sector). International collaborations are also encouraged.

Funded grants are expected to act as ‘beacons’ for the theme, addressing key research questions and issues highlighted in the Science in Culture theme description and exemplifying the cross- discipline and collaborative approaches and ways of working that the theme is seeking to encourage.
