Dear Andrew et al. (copied to a lot of people)
Please if you are interested in coordinating a Workshop on Heterodox 
Economic Analysis methods read the following and reply to me (Wendy 
Olsen) so I can help coordinate an application from the AHE group that

had such a successful conference this week.  

Below please see the ESRC's guideline URGING groups like us to apply 
for funds.

However note that I am probably already going to be involved in 2 other

workhsps during 2001 so we need an AHE WORKSHOP COORDINATOR to take 
this on.  Ring me (number below) to get details of the scheme.  I will

be happy to teach on the workhsop but would prefer it to be at a venue

elsewhere in UK.

NonUK nationals can of course go to the Workshops but they need to be 
registered UK PhD 2nd-4th year students to ge t the funding.  

ESRC RESEARCH TRAINING DEVELOPMENT ACTIVITIES (TDA) 2001
EXTRACT: Guidance Notes for Applicants

Completed application forms should be returned to the Postgraduate 
Training Division on or before 10 November 2000


1.	Background to the scheme

	In July 1997, a proposal to invite Learned Societies to submit 
applications for advanced research training events was approved by the

ESRC Training Board. The Board agreed to support 8 applications in 
December 1997, 11 in December 1998 and 11 in December 1999.  

	There is now an opportunity for those that did not apply or who

were unsuccessful last year to apply in 2000. The Board wishes to 
extend the range of events supported and the organisations putting 
forward proposals. The scheme is not therefore limited to learned 
societies in the social sciences and other organisations are encouraged

to put forward applications for funding. The Board is also willing to 
consider supporting student-lead events and training activities 
directed towards supervisors rather than students. However, all 
applications for TDA funding should be made on a non-profit making 
basis. Please note that Departments or other units within a Higher 
Education Institution may not apply in their own right.

The following Notes have been updated from last year to help applicants

to meet the ESRC's requirements for the scheme.

2.	ESRC requirements

	Advanced research training

2.1	The priority for TDA support is on 'advanced' research 
training.  Events should build on and take further, but not replicate,

the training requirements outlined in the ESRC Postgraduate Training 
Guidelines (1996).  The ESRC considers provision of the training 
outlined in these Guidelines to be the responsibility of individual 
academic institutions and departments for provision in the first or 
foundation year of a research student's PhD study.  Many students will

require further training as they advance in their studies "to cover 
specialist and continuing training needs" (B1.1.3).  Not all Higher 
Education Institutions (HEIs) might have the necessary resources or 
level of expertise available to provide such specialist training.  Such

provision has the potential to build on HEI research training to meet 
the ESRC Guidelines but not duplicate it.

2.2 Activities providing advanced training will be expected to address

methodological and technical research-based knowledge, skills, 
understandings and related issues situated in the disciplines or 
subject areas within the social sciences. In general, the ESRC is 
prepared to consider training activities as 'advanced' if they are 
directed towards or based upon:

i)	advances in the sophistication and rigour of existing ways of 
thinking about or conducting research in a particular subject, 
discipline or interdisciplinary area;
ii)	advances effected by the incorporation of new ways of combining

well tried and trusted traditional approaches in one area with those in

another; iii) advances brought about by the need to adopt and adapt 
existing approaches to new or changing purposes, situations, or 
circumstances.

	However, applications which do not provided advanced training 
but which offer other benefits to the participants will also be 
considered provided that these benefits are clearly explained.
