Understanding vaccine hesitancy within the UK and G7 - Call for research proposals [fr]

Call for research proposals are opened until the 6th of October 5pm (BST).
UK and G7- based researchers from any discipline within the humanities and social sciences can apply through the British Academy website.

The British Academy has opened a call for research proposals pertaining COVID-19 recovery and citizen engagement. Applications from UK and G7-based researchers in social sciences and humanities can win awards of five months in duration and up to £100 000.

The aim of this call for proposals is to understand vaccine hesitancy as well as vaccine engagement within each country contexts. The British Academy will pay special attention to applications demonstrating specific focus on context at local and community levels. These research proposals must also be inscribed in broader international learning dynamics.

Proposals should aim to answer these two questions:
• How does context specific to place, culture, social, political and economic factors shape people’s responses to vaccines ?
• How can we harness existing knowledge to develop, disseminate and employ community-engaged research which works for and with national and regional public health authorities and community actors and researchers before, during and after vaccine deployment programmes?

Applicants must be based at an eligible UK university or research institute. in G7 countries. Collaboration between researcher applicants in different institutions is encouraged and the British Academy expects co-applicants to be based both in the UK and elsewhere in the G7.
The deadline for submissions and UK institutional approval is  on the 6th of October 2021, 17:00 (BST). Find more information here
