Logo of UK Research and Innovation - Arts and Humanities Research Council

The AHRC have opened their long-awaited Towards a National Collection (TaNC) call. Their deadline for outline applications is 17th November 2020, with outcomes announced by the end of January 2021.


This call aims to fund up to five projects over a maximum of 36 months within the total funding envelope of £15, with an indicative limit for each project of £3m (representing 80% of the fEC). A single IRO or HEI can lead a maximum of three outline proposals. There is no limit to the number of proposals an institution can be involved in as co-investigator/project partner.


The AHRC intend to hold at least four open webinars for applicants to find out further information, ask questions, and begin to discuss initial ideas. The dates of the webinars are as follows:


Wednesday 27 May 2020

Monday 1 June 2020

Tuesday 2 June 2020

Wednesday 3 June 2020


To attend the AHRC webinars, please complete the SmartSurvey by 18th May.


The Oxford University Research Services will run a coordinated process to identify the three most compelling, coherent, and deliverable Oxford lead outlines, in line with the aims of the call. Research Services will also be delivering an e-discussion in mid-June, following on from the initial session facilitated by Hattie Warburton in April, and including further information regarding the call following the AHRC webinar series in early June. More details on how to attend will be shared nearer the time. More information about the internal coordination process can be found here.
