Short description

Multi-national teams of researchers with an interest in comparative social science are invited to submit applications for modules of questions to be fielded as part of Round 11 of the European Social Survey (ESS). Round 11 of the ESS will be fielded in late 2022 and early 2023 across Europe. The deadline for Stage 1 applications closes on 17 January 2020.

The ESS questionnaire consists of two elements: a core module of substantive and socio-demographic items which remains identical across rounds; and two rotating modules, of up to 30 items each, which vary from round to round. Each rotating module covers a single academic and/or policy concern within Europe and is drafted by a competitively selected team. The chosen Question Module Design Teams (QDTs) work closely with the Core Scientific Team (CST) of the ESS to develop their rotating modules.

Successful applications for previous rotating modules are available here.

The Scientific Advisory Board (SAB) to the ESS ERIC will decide which Stage 1 proposals meet the criteria to be shortlisted. Their decision is final. Shortlisted teams will then be invited to submit a full proposal at Stage 2. The SAB will select two rotating modules from the proposals submitted at Stage 2.
