NIH is part of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services and is the country`s medical research agency. As part of the SBE-UKRI Lead Agency Opportunity, joint research proposals can be adopted in areas at the interface between the NSF/SBE and UKRI missions. The UK research councils involved in this activity are the Economic and Social Research Council (ESRC), the Arts and Humanities Research Council (AHRC) and the Biotechnology and Biological Sciences Research Council (BBSRC). Applicants should review the programmes supported by the NSF/SBE and the relevant UK Research Council in order to obtain more information on areas of research that may be supported in these activities. Proposals should reflect the typical size and duration of proposals for uk Research Council (s) and SBE seeking funding. Proposals are adopted for interdisciplinary and disciplinary research projects. A list of participating SBE programs is available at

Please note that this activity only covers key programs within the SBE divisions. He is not eligible for cross-cutting or agency-wide programs. The funds available vary depending on the board or the training agency: bilateral UKRI-FAPESP agreement for the research grant program The lead funding agency will tell you if your proposal has been successful. Once a candidate has been informed of an outstanding award, the non-project researcher or researchers must provide a copy of the proposal to the non-executive agency so that each agency has complete documentation of the proposed research project as a whole. At this stage, successful applicants will benefit from other guidelines. Renewal applications are reviewed by participating agencies according to standard procedures. Applications for contract changes are reviewed with other relevant funding agencies before making a mutual decision. In 2018, the National Science Foundation (NSF) and UKRI signed an agreement that initiated a series of management agency agreements between the UK research councils and the various departments of the NSF. This means that academics who wish to fund a bilateral project between the United States and the United Kingdom must apply only to a funding agency (NSF or Uk Research Council, depending on where most of the research is located).
