Telling Tales of Engagement Competition 2019

The Digital Economy (DE) theme invites applications for the ‘Telling Tales of Engagement Competition’ (TTE) to help capture and promote the impact of research supported by one of the Digital Economy Theme partners EPSRC, ESRC or AHRC.

Three TTE awards will be available, each worth £10,000 spanning over 18 months. These awards are designed to help capture the wider impact of DE research and to provide researchers with the opportunity to tell their story of research impact in an interesting and engaging way to a wider audience, including the general public.

This year, the Telling Tales of Engagement (TTE) 2019 competition has three aims. We want you to:

  1. Capture the impact and benefits that the Digital Economy Theme’s research is having, how this impact unfolded and what benefits for society and economy has (or are expected to be delivered) from your research. 
  2. Tell a tale that describe how your impact pathway genuinely unfolded in order to help the wider research community learn examples of best practice from your experiences of how impact can really occur, and how you went about engaging with any partners. 
  3. Engage the public (while helping to address UKRI’s equality, diversity and inclusion agenda) with your research in order to show how the benefits of your research help make a contribution to various challenges.

Please note that applications are open to teams as well as individuals, from all career stages in academia (including PhD students), industry, users and the third sector. Only one application for a TTE award is accepted per digital economy research grant funding.

To apply, please complete the online form at the bottom of this call page, addressing the questions in the Call Scope, by 12:00 noon on Thursday 12 December 2019.
