Productivity Project Funding: Open Call Round 1
In May 2018 PIN opened our first public call; the ‘#pieceofthepuzzle’ campaign challenged teams of academic and non-academic partners to take a multi-disciplinary social science approach in finding fresh insights into the UK’s productivity puzzle. Applicants were encouraged to draw on the PIN evidence reviews, which highlight gaps in our current understanding of UK productivity. An overwhelming response was received to the call. The award panel was highly impressed by the quality project proposals received. Four ‘Pioneer Projects’ were funded up to £50,000 each and eight ‘Small Projects’ were funded up to £10,000 each. Projects started work in September 2018. Pioneer Projects will take around ten months to complete and Small Projects, four months. To find out more about the innovative projects and what they are trying to achieve, read the brief descriptions below.
