The Oxford Policy Engagement Network (OPEN) connects researchers, professional services staff and doctoral students across the University with opportunities to engage with the policymaking community locally, nationally and internationally.

This year, £90,000 is available for awards of up to £22,500 to enable researchers with a passion for improving public policy to:

  • understand better the relevance of their research to policymakers;
  • work with policymakers to identify and explore mutual interests; and
  • develop and leverage networks and other resources to generate benefits to research, policy and the wider world.

Researchers at Oxford in any discipline can apply. Full details, guidance, and stories from previous OPEN Fellows can be found on the OPEN homepage. Deadline: 5 October 2020. Please contact if you have an idea you would like to discuss.
