National Research Landscape Survey

In preparation for the post-REF2021 assessment cycle, Research England have commissioned a survey of researchers within Higher Education Institutions (HEIs) in England.

The survey will help further understand what the research landscape might look like over the next 10 years and will help inform planning for future research assessment.

The survey asks researchers for their views forward on future of collaboration, open science and research integrity, among other topics, and is a vital opportunity for researchers to help shape the future of research assessment.

Global Challenges Research Fund collective programme – multi-hazards and systemic risks

The Natural Environment Research Council, on behalf of UK Research and Innovation through the Global Challenges Research Fund collective programme, invites applications for its call on multi-hazards and systemic risks. This supports projects that provide a better understanding of the drivers of multi-hazard events and how the impacts of these events cascade through socio-economic systems, and use this knowledge to determine which interventions and policies are effective at mitigating the risks, particularly for vulnerable groups. The focus is on multiple natural hazards and the interrelated environmental, social, economic, cultural and health risks, and effects that can be triggered by these events, or can amplify or compound their impacts.
