The Economic and Social Research Council (ESRC) and the National Institute for Health Research (NIHR) are pleased to invite outline proposals to undertake social science research to support innovation in dementia prevention, interventions and care delivery.

Research should advance methodology and social science theory in dementia research and support active career development, particularly for postdoctoral researchers. Proposals should inform health and social care practice and policy relating to dementia, supporting people in their communities and making a difference to the lives of people with dementia, their carers and families.

Proposals are expected to be between £2 million and £5 million (at 100% full economic cost) with a duration of between 36 and 60 months.
