Engaging with Government 2020

Return to opportunities

Summary

The Engaging with Government programme is a three day course which will take place in March 2020 and is designed to provide an insight into the policy making process, and help participants develop the skills needed to pursue the policy implications of their research. It also aims to build links between policy makers and the most dynamic new research in the arts and humanities. We are inviting eligible researchers to submit an application to attend the course.

The programme will:

  • Encourage you to see opportunities where your own research could make a valuable contribution in a public policy context
  • Challenge you to think in more depth about the policy process, and the role of research within it
  • Increase the influencing and communication skills that you need to achieve this.

Eligibility

The programme is open to any arts and humanities researcher (at all career stages) based at a UK HEI or recognised independent research organisation working in any area of the AHRC’s subject domain.

Applicants must be employed in a full- or part-time postdoctoral or equivalent position, which may be either fixed term or permanent, and which lists academic research as one of its main responsibilities. Applicants must be in post at the time of application, and the position must extend beyond the delivery of the ‘Engaging with Government’ course in March 2020. Further, the position must be held at a research organisation which is eligible to apply to the AHRC.

The course will be held at the Institute of Government Offices in London on 24, 25, and 26 March 2020 and applicants will need to commit to attending all three days in full. The costs of the course, accommodation, travel, and subsistence will be paid for according to AHRC’s standard terms and conditions.
