"In 1985, the RSA Board agreed to introduce Research Networks (formerly referred to as Working Groups) to our activity portfolio. In 2015, the Research Network funding award was increased as part of the 50th Anniversary celebrations of the Association. The maximum funding for Research Network is:

£10,000 (c. $12,700; c. €11,200) for newly established networks;
£7,500 (c. $9,500; c. €8,400) for renewing networks.
RSA Research Networks are formed by RSA members interested in collaborating to examine an issue that responds to the aims and goals of the Association, and which is of interest and concern to both members and non-members. These issues need not necessarily to have a direct policy focus, but the examination would normally lead to policy-related conclusions. A list of current and previous Research Networks is available below.

The Research Network must be organised and managed by RSA members, with all organisers remaining members of the Association throughout the entire duration of the Research Network. A Research Network is made up of individuals from different countries, although they can be from any membership category. The full Terms and Conditions governing this grant are available in the Research Network Handbook, along with an updated FAQ.

Forthcoming application deadline: 30th September 2020
