Call for expressions of interest: research projects that will benefit the community business sector

The Power to Change Research Institute is inviting expressions of interest for high-quality research projects that have tangible benefits for the community business sector in England.

Twice a year, we invite applications from those who understand the needs of community businesses best, be they: community businesses themselves; organisations that represent or support them; academics; freelance researchers, research organisations or think-tanks. We are particularly interested in partnership bids between researchers and community businesses or voluntary sector organisations.

This round, funding in the range of £20,000 to £40,000 per project is available for up to three research projects. After the expression of interest phase, a selection of the projects will be invited to submit a full proposal for consideration by our panel.

Call for expressions of interest open: Monday 3rd June-Monday 1st July.

Full proposals to be submitted: Monday 8th July-Monday 22nd July.

The next round will go live in early 2020.

Please see the call documentation for full details about previous research we have funded and how to apply.

The deadline for expressions of interest is 10am on Monday 1 July 2019.
