The ESRC invites applications for the Seminars Competition of 2005-6. Approximately 50 awards of up to £15,000 each will be made, for a maximum period of two years.

Seminar Groups are multi-institutional groups of academic researchers, postgraduate students and non-academic users who meet regularly to exchange information and ideas with the aim of advancing research within their fields. Where appropriate, Seminar Group members should be drawn from industry, government departments and other relevant organisations as well as from academic institutions.
