Rethinking Public Dialogue – Support for public dialogue innovations

By 05/10/2022

The RSA and UKRI are supporting projects that test novel approaches and new possibilities for public dialogue.

Does your project innovatively involve the public with pressing research issues?

In an exciting collaboration with UKRI, the RSA is offering funding to support pilot projects that challenge the boundaries of conversations between the public, researchers, and policymakers.

Rethinking Public Dialogue is a UKRI fund, delivered by the RSA, that will be supporting up to eight new projects that test new approaches to public dialogue. Funders are interested in hearing about projects that cover a wide range of topics:

  • Building a green future
  • Securing better health, ageing, and wellbeing
  • Tackling infection
  • Building a secure and resilient world
  • Creating opportunities and improving outcomes

Have you been tackling these issues with cutting-edge digital tools? Have you implemented creative techniques to unite social needs and innovative thinking? Or maybe you are trialling ways to break down barriers, and scale-up engagement to broader perspectives?

The total value for this fund is £480,000 across all pilots, which are anticipated to last up to nine months in their delivery and should be concluded by summer 2023.
