Like the Royal Society, the British Academy is transitioning to the new Flexi-Grant system over the summer. Currently British Academy uses e-Gap2 for both application and grant management.

Flexi-Grant will go live on 1st August 2017, when all existing grants on e-Gap2 will be migrated over to the new system. It will open for new user registrations on 9th August.

The main difference between Flexi-Grant and the existing e-Gap2 system is that references and Head of Department support statements must be in place before submission, rather than afterwards.

There will be a phased approach to adopting the new system for forthcoming grant schemes which is set out in the list below:

August 2017:

Mid-Career Fellowships call opens

Postdoctoral Fellowships call opens

September 2017:

BA/Leverhulme Small Research Grants (Round 2017-18) call opens

Tackling the UK’s International Challenges (tbc)

GCRF: Sustainable Development Programme (tbc)

October 2017:

BA/Leverhulme Senior Research Fellowships call opens

British Academy Rising Star Engagement Awards call opens

April 2018:

BA/Leverhulme Small Research Grants (Round 2018) call opens
