Open Call for Proposals 2017

We are now inviting expressions of interest for our latest call for proposals to run knowledge exchange programmes starting in autumn 2017. Applicants are encouraged to see projects as an opportunity to
explore the implications of increasing uncertainty in many spheres; make connections across institutions and across disciplines and between the academic and the non-academic community; and to generate fresh insights from the interaction of different perspectives that might not often meet.

Full details and guidance can be found on our call for proposals page.


SUII impact programme

In 2016, we initiated a project to better understand how knowledge exchange projects, such as those sponsored by SUII, can help contribute to public policy and practice and best support the impact agenda. The findings from an online survey, workshop and telephone interviews have been collated into a compendium of lessons to inform the future design and delivery of SUII projects.
