Our new website

26 January 2011

We launched our new website in late January, following a 12 month redevelopment project.

The new site provides improved usability, based on feedback received from staff, site users and the academic community. Changes to functionality ensure that the site better meets the requirements of ESRC and its user community. It delivers a more cost-efficient and user-focused service.

Significant changes

As well as a new design and structure, the new website site provides improved search and advanced search capabilities.

The site is structured around key tasks and information that our users require. To reflect this, the site has two primary sections:

Users will be able to access content that is relevant to particular research topics through our new research topics section. You can access content such as research outputs, features and case studies for a particular topic.

Other key sections include:

Bookmarks and links

Bookmarks and links to content on our old website will no longer work. You will need to update any bookmarks and saved links.
