OPEN Leaders Scheme 2022: Call for proposals

OPEN Leaders Scheme 2022: call for proposals

Are you passionate about improving public policy through better use of research evidence, and looking to develop your leadership potential in this area?

The first five Oxford Policy Engagement Network (OPEN) Leaders were appointed in 2021. Now there’s another chance for researchers across the University to secure up to £8,000 to enable them to take a leading role in the development of the network, advocating for, designing and delivering initiatives that enable one or more departments or faculties to:

  • improve access for the policymaking community to the best available research evidence and expertise;
  • deepen understanding of how researchers can contribute to policymaking, and develop skills to do this effectively; and/or
  • broaden and deepen relevant networks, creating and developing more opportunities for engagement.

Check out the call for applications or get in touch with the Policy Engagement team for an informal discussion of your ideas.

Deadline for applications: 12pm on Monday 7 February
