Restricted call: Student engagement in knowledge exchange (Nov 1 deadline)

Restricted call: Student engagement in knowledge exchange – Demonstrating what works for students (internal deadline 1st November 2019)


Research England and the Office for Students have announced the Student Engagement in Knowledge Exchange – Demonstrating what works for students call.


The funders are seeking project proposals to demonstrate benefits to students through their involvement in knowledge exchange (KE) activities.  Projects should provide evidence of the effectiveness and impact to the student as well as the external partner, and exemplars of good practice, which can provide transferable insights across the HE sector.  The funders are making up to £10 million available for this scheme. A minimum of £250k and a maximum of £1 million is available for the successful projects, which can run for up to two years.  Bids requesting the full amount are expected to involve collaborations across at least two higher education providers.


The funders expect co-investment to be provided by the higher education providers and external partners involved in the bid in order to demonstrate evidence of commitment to the project, and to risk-sharing, alongside any OfS and RE funding.


University Internal selection:

Institutions may be involved in up to two bids and act as the lead on only one of those bids. Therefore, this call will be managed according to the University’s restricted calls policy.


To take part in the internal selection process please submit the attached internal selection form together with a support letter from the Head of the Department / Centre / Institute that will hold the grant, confirming their support for the project and agreement to host the grant to by 1st November 2019.


Funder deadline: 17.00, 13 December 2019.
