Research Funding and Strategic Initiatives



The School of the Humanities and Social Sciences is leading the University’s collaboration with Sciences Po to develop research links in areas including Politics, History and Public Policy. The current framework agreement, signed in November 2017, will run for three years and will support a range of workshops, symposia, exchanges and collaborative projects.

A first call for proposals is now live, seeking to fund activities which will build lasting links between researchers in Cambridge institutions and Sciences Po, and will develop research groupings to investigate key areas of public policy. Around £30k per annum is available across the two organisations. Activities might include:

(i) Exchange visits for students, researchers and academics
(ii) Collaborative workshops or seminars in either venue
(iii) Collaborative research projects
(iv) Travel grants for access to facilities in either Sciences Po or Cambridge
