The Economic and Social Research Council, together with the Technology Strategy Board, invites applications for members of the Innovation Caucus. This programme will represent a range of organisations and social science disciplines to ensure a balance of expertise and advice is available, highlighting the range and diversity of social science relevant to the TSB and its community. Members will engage with social science research, set out a strategic plan for increasing the uptake of ESRC funded research by the TSB and other policy-makers and identify policy windows and opportunities.
Senior academics or individuals with strong understanding of social science and policy or practice context for innovation are welcome to apply.
Funding covers salary costs and can be used to buy-in research assistants for specific projects.
