United Kingdom Research and Innovation (UKRI)

Outcomes review of the Catalyst Seed Fund (2018)

The Catalyst Seed Fund provided flexible project funding to 10 UK universities to help them create a culture where public engagement with research was better embedded within their institutional policies procedures and practices.

UKRI School-University Partnerships Initiative

School-University Partnerships Initiative (SUPI) programme meta-evaluation (2016-18)

SUPI was a four-year initiative (2013-18) to create mechanisms for universities to work in partnership with schools and colleges and to support researchers to engage directly with students about research. We conducted a meta-evaluation of the outcome and impact of the programme through analysis of all project documentation and interviews with key stakeholders. The final report will be published on the UKRI website in spring 2019.
