UCL Public Policy is offering funding for EPSRC projects to organise and deliver 'Policy Dialogues': knowledge transfer activities and events designed to foster engagement between research and policy.
A Policy Dialogue can be a meeting/series of meetings to allow for academics, policy makers, and policy practitioners to come together to discuss current priorities and proposals for future work. These activities are meant to be multidisciplinary, wider than the UCL community, and are not just meant for knowledge transfer but to build communities to share best practice, and built on a current policy need and support by a policy partner.
The application process is straightforward, quick and applications are assessed on a rolling basis, but activities will have to be complete by January 2020. Lead applicants have to be associated with an EPSRC project.
Contact Public Policy Engagement Facilitator for BEAMS, Carina Schneider, for more information.
