This programme is a three day course designed to provide an insight into the policy making progress, and to enable academics to apply this to their own research. It aims to build links between policy makers and the most dynamic new research in the arts and humanities.

The programme will:

•encourage participants to think about the ways in which their own research could make a valuable contribution to public policy;

•challenge participants to think in more depth about the policy process, and the role of research within it;

•enhance the influencing and communication skills that participants need to achieve this.

Applications are accepted from early career researchers working in any area of the council’s subject domain. The event is open to ECRs who hold an AHRC award, and to ECRs who hold awards from other fundersThe costs of the course, accommodation and travel and subsistence will be paid for according to AHRC’s standard terms and conditions.

About Us

We aim to support public policy research across Cambridge University, working with colleagues in science, social science, the arts and humanities, to apply new thinking to public policy problems and promote research and analysis into the public policy process. We hope to connect and raise the profile of existing public policy related work across the University and support collaborative research that includes policy development in a range of subject areas.
