The Strategic Advisory Network (SAN) exists to provide ESRC and its Executive with:

  • detailed expert support and advice (to cover the design of strategies and schemes, investment management, pre- and post-award, and interventions)
  • broad perspective of advice on issues, proposals and decisions, including feedback on views within our various stakeholder groups
  • access to a pool of academic and user experts to whom the office can turn for ad hoc advice and advocacy and to test out new ideas
  • provision of input into general policy advice.
