Policy Engagement Innovation Funding

(2 February 2018)

We are piloting some funding for testing new approaches to public policy related research engagement. 

The total funding available (which is fluid between the three strands) is:

2017/18 (financial year): £10,000

2018/19 (financial year): £15,000

We envisage funding being used for relatively short term activities and up to around £2k, being used in three main ways, but as this is a pilot are open to discussing other ideas with people.

1. Placements and exchanges

2. Experimental policy engagement pilots

3. Rapid response
