Funding Call: British Academy Conferences

November 13th, 2020

We are pleased to announce the call for proposals for British Academy Conferences to be held in 2022. 

The British Academy Conferences scheme, with generous support from the Department for Business, Energy & Industrial Strategy and the Wellcome Trust, presents an exceptional opportunity for UK-based scholars to run a pivotal event of lasting significance in their field, as a central part of the Academy’s events programme.  

Successful conferences will bring together scholars from around the world to present and discuss new research in the humanities and social sciences. Held either at the British Academy’s own premises in London, at other British venues, or online, these landmark events will offer students, scholars and specialists an opportunity to learn about the latest developments in their subject areas and to expand their academic networks. 

Awards for a new strand of British Academy / Wellcome Trust Conferences are available for events that foster discussion and debate on health and wellbeing related themes.

The deadline to submit a proposal to hold a British Academy Conference in 2022 is 5pm on 27 January 2021. Please refer to the guidelines before submitting your proposal on Flexi-Grant.
