BEIS is offering 3 secondments for academic researchers, to provide expert input into the work of the Industrial Strategy Council, in the following areas:
- Building the evidence on successful local growth policy
- The role of the Industrial Strategy in driving behavioural change to deliver Clean Growth
- An evidence review: Trade, Investment, and Industrial Policy
The ISC is responsible for recommending success measures for the Industrial Strategy White Paper and then monitoring performance. Attached is the specification including the three secondment scopes that BEIS has put together for these roles. These are opportunities for researchers with a background in economics, statistical analysis or social research. ESRC will consider requests to fund the direct costs of replacing staff who are seconded.
