Knowledge Transfer Projects (KTPs) grants
The RES Knowledge Transfer Projects (KTPs) grants will provide funding up to a maximum of £2,000 for projects that increase the sharing of knowledge and expertise between academic and non-academic economists or those in related fields. For example, an RES member in a public or private sector organisation could invite an academic economist to contribute to a project concerning a business or policy issue. Proposals that involve Continuing Professional Development (eg. an academic economist contributing to an organisation’s CPD via delivering a workshop) will also be welcome.
The scheme will open for applications shortly, with a deadline for applications 30th September 2021.
