Applications open for Research England Policy Support Fund

LJMU is being allocated funding from the Research England Policy Support Fund (PSF) to support the development of impactful research and engagement activities. This call will also support proposals around public engagement or participatory research training and development.

Applications of up to £10,000 will be considered. However, in exceptional cases, requests for slightly more funding will be accepted where a strong and clear rationale is provided.

For this round, applicants can request funding spanning two financial years (2022/23 and 2023/24) for long-term projects, but applicants must specify how the funds will be spent in each financial year.
