British Academy – Policy Insight Case Studies
Closing Date: 01/02/2023
Funding available for policy-focused research projects to support two public policy programmes; Technology and Inequality, and Environmental Sustainability and Place.
The British Academy (BA) is inviting proposals for policy-focused research projects to support two of their public policy programmes; Technology and Inequality, and Environmental Sustainability and Place.
This call is funded by the UK’s Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy (BEIS).
The Technology and Inequality programme will help to improve the BAs understanding of how to ensure technologies deliver public good and help to reduce inequalities, not exacerbate them. This work was prompted by a request from the Government Office for Science and aims to improve their understanding of how government can play a key role in supporting access to, uptake of, and investment in technologies that can be critical to delivering broad public objectives, in a way that ensures inequalities do not become entrenched.
The BAs work on Environmental Sustainability and Place seeks to explore environmental sustainability through the lens of place and place-sensitive policy, and examines how visible different places, and the people and cultures within them, are to decision makers when they make decisions about the environment. This programme builds on the evidence from the Academy’s previous programme of work on Where We Live Now.
Projects funded under this scheme will help provide critical evidence of how evidence-based interventions are contributing to improved policy development across each of these areas.
Projects should specify which of the two policy areas their case study work will address.
The BA expect most proposals to engage with only one of these areas. However, where projects will provide policy insight into both areas, applicants should clearly explain how they will do so in their proposal.
