AHRC ‘Where Next’ Submission Form

Closes 31 Dec 2050

Opened 17 Apr 2024


Where Next Ideas can come from any individual or group, at any career stage and from any interested parties. This includes those who use arts and humanities in their practice, such as business, policymakers, and non-governmental organisations. This also includes people in any role in the wider research and innovation landscape, whether research focussed, teaching focussed, or in technical, research development or other professional service roles.

Why your views matter

This is not a call for proposals and there is no dedicated funding attached to Where Next. Rather, we seek community insight to enhance the pool of ideas we can draw from to inform our work and respond to opportunities as they arise.


Ideas can be submitted at any stage of development. Some will already be mature with a strong evidence base, history of stakeholder engagement, and a clear sense of direction. Others may be very early in development with little evidence or input from others. For ideas that we decide to take forward, we will adjust and scale our approach appropriately. Unless otherwise stated as part of a highlight notice, ideas can be submitted at any time throughout the year and will be reviewed approximately every six months on a rolling basis.


For more information on what happens to ideas which are submitted and how they might be used please see Where Next – UKRI.

Please answer all questions, keeping to the word limit specified. Additionally, please be aware that the bullet points are guides on how you could answer the question and do not have to be strictly followed and answered.
