Evidence Synthesis Training pilot scheme 2017-18

Call status: Closed

NERC invites proposals to deliver training to early career researchers and PhD students at the point of submission relevant to the theme of evidence synthesis to inform policy and business decision-making, developed and delivered in collaboration with the users of NERC research. Training funded as part of this scheme must be completed by 31 March 2018.

This call invites proposals offering training in a variety of forms relevant to both particular strands of NERC research or in the broad themes of evidence synthesis relevant across NERC remit. NERC requires that all applicants engage with relevant non-academic stakeholders when developing and delivering training. Applicants proposing training without this engagement will not be considered for funding.

NERC has a total budget of £500,000 for this scheme.
