Did you know that government departments publish their areas of research interest? This is a guide to where research funds might go, and is useful if you are thinking about policy impact.
The collection is here, and four new ones have been added today:
- Ministry of Housing, Communities and Local Government
- Department for Education
- Department for Culture, Media and Sport
- Ministry of Justice
The DCMS one says “It is designed to encourage researchers and academics to explore those topics that could be of benefit to DCMS and our sectors and act as a starting point for future collaboration.”
There are strategic themes and long lists of specific questions – if you’re working on any of these, you might want to read our blog from earlier today and contact the policy team.
