AHRC – Engaging with Government Programme

Leave a comment

The Engaging with Government programme is a three day course designed to provide an insight into the policy making process, and help participants develop the skills needed to pursue the policy implications of their research. It also aims to build links between policy makers and the most dynamic new research in the arts and humanities. The AHRC is inviting eligible researchers to submit an application to attend the course.

The programme will:

  • Encourage you to see opportunities where your own research could make a valuable contribution in a public policy context.
  • Challenge you to think in more depth about the policy process, and the role of research within it.
  • Increase the influencing and communication skills that you need to achieve this.

The programme is for early career researchers working in any area of the AHRC’s subject domain.

The closing date for applications is 5pm on Friday 7th October 2016.

For more information and to apply, please visit the AHRC.
