As governments come under increasing pressure for political accountability, there is an increased demand for evidence-based policy derived from the insights of academic research. The Oxford Policy Exchange Network is a University-wide initiative designed to support policy engagement. Successful applicants will form our second cohort of Policy Fellows.
The aims of this Fellowship scheme are: to build partnerships with a view to shaping the policy agenda in global, national, and regional contexts; to support evidence-based policymaking; to develop and sustain strategic relationships with policymakers; and to improve and diversify the breadth of policy engagement at Oxford through policy partnerships.
5pm on Monday 30 September 2019
Up to £25k (£100k in pot, approximately 4–6 awards)
Open to researchers from any discipline across the University
Possible partners: local authorities and regional policymakers, national level policymakers – UK or overseas, international and intergovernmental bodies, think tanks and lobby groups, regulators, third sector policy-related organisations and public sector bodies
