The ESRC have awarded the NWSSDTP 12 steered awards each year in the following Priority Areas:
- Advanced Quantitative Methods (4 awards)
- Use of Datasets (4 awards) – the NWSSDTP particularly welcomes applications to this Priority Area which focus on Longitudinal Data Analysis.
- Interdisciplinary research which straddles other research council remits (4 awards) – the NWSSDTP particularly welcomes applications to this Priority Area which focus on Data Science.
We encourage students to identify if their proposed project fits into a Priority Area, as this may strengthen their application and will be considered positively in terms of fit with a priority area.
Further details on the Priority Areas can be found in this Guide to NWSSDTP Priority Areas
