AHRC follow-on funding for impact and engagement

This grant supports unforeseen knowledge exchange, public engagement, active dissemination and commercialisation activities that arise during the lifespan of, or following, an AHRC-funded project. It funds innovative and creative engagement with new audiences and user communities, with significant economic, social, cultural or policy impact.

We provide grants of up to £100,000 for a maximum of one year, and smaller grants of up to £30,000 for shorter or higher-risk activities such as exploring new partnerships for knowledge exchange, testing the market or investigating a new business model.

The proposed activities should enhance the value and wider benefit of your original research project, and have a significant economic, social, cultural or policy impact.

The follow-on funding for impact and engagement aims to:

  • explore unforeseen pathways to impact either within the lifespan of an AHRC research project or resulting from a completed research project
  • enhance the value and benefits of AHRC-funded research beyond academia
  • encourage and enable a range of interactions and creative engagements between arts and humanities research and a variety of user communities – including business, third sector and heritage sector, public policy, voluntary and community groups, or the general public.

Open – no closing date
