Funding: ESRC Knowledge Exchange Opportunities scheme
- Social sciences and economics
- Funding available:
- max. £125,000
- Who can apply:
The scheme is open to social scientists, including PhD students and knowledge exchange professionals based at UK Research Organisations eligible for Research Council funding
- Further information:
The scheme provides the opportunity to apply for funding for knowledge exchange activities (this includes public engagement) at any stage of the research lifecycle, and is aimed at maximising the impact of social science research outside academia.
The flexibility built into the scheme is intended to encourage applicants to think creatively about knowledge exchange, and applications are welcomed for either a single activity or a combination of activities; be it setting up a network to help inform the development of a research proposal, arranging an academic placement with a voluntary or business organisation, or developing tools such as podcasts and videos aimed at communicating the results of research to the general public, or developing existing research to make it more applicable to policy or practice.
The scheme has also been broadened to allow applications for new applied research, provided this is user-led or in collaboration with a user partner.
