SAMS/BAM Research and Capacity Building Grant Scheme - APPLICATION INFORMATION AVAILABLE NOW

 

The Society for the Advancement of Management Studies (SAMS) and the British Academy of Management (BAM) is pleased to announce the launch of a new grant scheme starting in July 2019, with a second round of funding to be announced in 2020. 

The scheme partnership strengthens the commitment of both organisations to support management research and promote capacity building. 

 

The SAMS/BAM Research and Capacity Building Grant Scheme: 

SAMS/BAM Research and Capacity Building grants are aimed at researchers who want to develop an empirical research project that: 

  • Enables capacity building by bringing together a group of researchers from at least two HE institutions, including early career as well as experienced researchers 

  • Produces novel conceptual outcomes based on rigorous, innovative use of methods and by developing original ways of thinking to address complex management problems  

  • Demonstrates the social value of management research conducted in the public interest 

It is envisaged that projects will normally involve researchers at two or more HE institutions in order to foster a culture of intellectual collaboration and enable capacity building. The intention of the scheme is to widen access of opportunity and increase the diversity and inclusivity of management research. Applications may address this in various ways, including by proposing an interdisciplinary research project if appropriate. Priority will be given to proposals with clear and effective publication, dissemination and impact plans. 

The maximum value of each award is £150,000. The duration of projects will be between 24 months (minimum) and 36 months (maximum). 

Principal Investigators must be based in a UK HE institution and will normally be located in a School of Management or Business. Co-Investigators may be based in HE institutions outside the UK. HE institutions will be limited to submitting one application (as host institution/Principal Investigator) in response to each annual Scheme call. 

The Principal Investigator and all Co-Investigators who are based in Schools of Management or Business must be BAM Members and have active BAM membership for the duration of the project. It is a condition of award that that research findings are presented at a BAM annual conference during the funding period. 

Shortlisted applicants will be invited to interview by the SAMS/BAM Grant Award Committee in November 2019. 

Applicants are advised to read the SAMS/BAM Research and Capacity Building Grant Application Guidance, available below, before making an application to the Scheme.
