About Opportunity

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. Fellowships are available for 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.

Eligibility Requirements

  • 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.


This scheme is supported by the University’s Higher Education Innovation Fund award. Fellowships can last up to 8.5 months, starting no earlier than 14 November 2022. All project activity must be completed and funding spent by 31 July 2023.

Application Procedure

All applications must include at least one non-academic policy partner organisation.

Applications are made using the Internal Research Award Management System (IRAMS).

Applicants should follow the guidance below, and are encouraged to consult their departmental research support team in the first instance, not least to ensure they comply with any departmental eligibility criteria, approval processes, or guidelines. Questions regarding the scheme in general, application process, and eligibility, should be addressed to researchandpublicpolicy@admin.ox.ac.uk.
