Funding Call – Innovation Fellowships Scheme Route B: Policy-led (Governance, Trust and Voice)

The Innovation Fellowships Scheme will provide funding and support for established early career and mid career researchers in the humanities and social sciences to partner with organisations and businesses in the creative, cultural, public, private and policy sectors, to address challenges that require innovative approaches and solutions. Through the Innovation Fellowships, our researchers in the SHAPE community will be supported to create new and deeper links beyond academia, enabling knowledge mobilisation and translation, as well as individual skills development.

This call will contribute to the Academy’s public policy theme of Governance, Trust and Voice, and specifically our efforts to support inclusive and evidence-based multi-level policy-making. Through this call, we are supporting researchers to work side by side with policymakers to explore how the UK can develop effective multi-level governance structures. The aim is to encourage participation, engagement and cooperation, and strengthen our capacity to identify and respond to local, regional and national evidence needs and the major policy challenges ahead.

This funding call will enable award-holders to work directly with two central Whitehall departments and support their multidisciplinary evidence needs in the broad areas of economic growth and innovation, levelling up and communities; areas which require effective evidence and decision-making at multiple levels of scale and place.

The Academy and the government departments invite applications for Fellowships in any of the following areas:

• Levelling Up Subnational Data Project (ONS)

• R&D and Innovation Landscape (ONS)

• Integration and Communities (DLUHC)

• Local Resilience and Economic Growth (DLUHC)

• Productivity (DLUHC)

• Devolution Across the UK (DLUHC)

Deadline for submission and organisation approval: Wednesday 11 January 2023, 17:00 (GMT).
