Engaging with Government is an annual three-day course run by the Arts and Humanities Research Council (AHRC) and the Institute for Government. Its aim is to help researchers understand the policymaking process and apply it to their research.
It also aims to build links between policymakers and new arts and humanities research.
You’ll need to meet both of these requirements:
- you’re an arts and humanities researcher (at any postdoctoral career stage)
- you’re based at a UK higher education institution or a recognised independent research organisation
How to apply
Entry to the programme is competitive and an application is required.
You do not need policy experience to be eligible to apply, but you need to indicate why you are interested in policymaking.
Applicants also need an understanding of what the programme can help them achieve and to articulate this in the application.
The course will be held at the Institute for Government Offices in central London from 27 to 29 February 2024, and you will need to commit to attending all three days in full or five half days if run virtually.
The costs of the course, accommodation, travel, and subsistence will be paid for according to AHRC’s standard terms and conditions (PDF, 162KB).
