Second call for commissioned research projects

Deadline for Expressions of Interest: Friday 18th June 2021

Deadline for Full Proposals: Friday 23rd July 2021

The Creative Industries Policy and Evidence Centre (PEC) provides independent research and policy recommendations for the UK’s creative industries. Our core programme is focused on five key areas: Creative Clusters and Innovation; Skills, Talent and Diversity; Intellectual Property, Business Models, Access to Finance and Content Regulation; Arts, Culture and Public Service Broadcasting; and International Competitiveness.

Following a successful first Call, we are pleased to announce this second Call for research proposals. We are seeking to fund studies that complement the ongoing work of the PEC and which contribute in a timely fashion to understanding the creative industries in the UK. We are particularly interested in commissioning work that places a strong emphasis on at least one of: (1) identifying and responding to evidence gaps; (2) delivering new policy developments; and (3) considering the importance of industry practice.
