Equality, diversity and inclusion – ESRC


EDI Caucus

As major public funders of research and innovation (R&I), UKRI’s research councils, Innovate UK, and the British Academy have a responsibility to ensure a thriving and diverse R&I system, now and in the future. ESRC, AHRC, BBSRC, EPSRC, Innovate UK and the British Academy opened a funding opportunity inviting applications for an interdisciplinary team to establish and lead an Equality, Diversity and Inclusion Caucus.

The caucus, made up of practitioners and researchers from a broad range of disciplines and sectors, will be responsible for providing high-quality research evidence on equality, diversity and inclusion that informs policy and practice in the research and innovation system.

The objectives of the EDI Caucus are to:

  • provide insights from research evidence on EDI that informs and shapes the work of the funders and the broader research and innovation sector
  • address priority evidence gaps by commissioning and undertaking new research and by supporting UKRI and the British Academy in testing and evaluating new EDI-related initiatives
  • promote, coordinate and facilitate interdisciplinary approaches to research on EDI
