In the first instance the scheme is open to engineering and physical science researchers to build upon previous EPSRC projects. Find out more and details of how to apply.

Small Grants Scheme

UCL Public Policy runs a small grants scheme to support work by the UCL community to enhance policy engagement and impact.

The Small Grants Scheme 2018/19 is now open to applications. This year the scheme will run under two main themes:

Policy Challenges - addressing real challenges set by our partners in Local and National Government, including Trade, Justice and Community.

Expert Engagement - exploring the role of academic expertise in public discourse and engagement around policy questions.

Each offering awards of up to £4,000 per project 

Deadline for applications: 8th October 2018.
