AHRC Launches Engaging with Government 2021

The Arts and Humanities Research Council (AHRC) has announced a call for applications for the Engaging with Government programme, in partnership with the Institute for Government.

The Engaging with Government programme is a three-day course which will take place in March 2021 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.

The programme will:

Encourage researchers to see opportunities where their own research could make a valuable contribution in a public policy context

Challenge researchers to think in more depth about the policy process, and the role of research within it

Increase the influencing and communication skills that researchers need to achieve this.

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.

The costs of the course, accommodation, travel, and subsistence will be paid for according to AHRC’s standard terms and conditions.

Applications must be submitted by the deadline of 30 October 2020.
