ESRC Global Strategy

Closed 22 Feb 2024

Opened 16 Jan 2024


ESRC is conducting a stakeholder survey to gather views and perceptions of the value of international research opportunities in the social sciences and the role of ESRC in enabling them. This engagement will inform the development of ESRC's Global Strategy and its future vision for international working, within the context of the wider ESRC Strategy.   

This survey is anonymous. However, by completing the Respondent Information section you will help us to assess if we have gathered views from a diverse range of groups as part of our engagement. 

Depending on the detail of your responses, we anticipate that the survey should take around 15 minutes to answer. 

This is an exploratory exercise only and is not a guarantee of future funding or managed calls in the ESRC international portfolio. 

The survey will close on Thursday 22nd February 2024. 

If you have any questions about this engagement exercise, please contact

Why your views matter

We have been gathering intelligence from a variety of sources and are now keen to learn more from our external stakeholder community. We would greatly appreciate your time and input to this exercise, whether or not you have prior experience of ESRC international schemes. 

By seeking the views of our wider community, we aim to shape our Global Strategy to ensure it is well informed, inclusive, and relevant to the challenges faced in a fast-changing international research context. 

What happens next

This survey is now closed. We are analysing your responses and hope to be able to report back on the high-level findings of the survey and the Global Strategy when possible.
