OPEN Fellowships 2023: Call for applications

University of Oxford Logo

Oxford Policy Engagement Network (OPEN) Fellowships enable researchers and public policy professionals to work closely together on a sustained project that strengthens the contribution of academic evidence and expertise to policy communities.

We are currently accepting proposals from academic and research staff from the University of Oxford to work closely with, or in, an organisation in the policymaking community, and for policy professionals to work closely with, or embedded within, a University department or faculty.


Fellowships of up to £20,000 foster collaboration between research and policy partners to:

  • Enable researchers and policymakers to share evidence and support its use in decision-making;
  • Improve researchers’ and policymakers’ understanding of how research can inform policymaking, and develop the skills to catalyse that process; and
  • Broaden and deepen the networks of both partners.

Deadline: 9 October 2023

If you would like to discuss an idea for a proposal, please do get in touch with our team here.
