RSA Research Network Grant Scheme

In 1985, the RSA Board agreed to introduce Research Networks (formerly referred to as Working Groups) to the Association's activity portfolio. A list of current and previous Research Networks is available below.

In 2015, the Association introduced an increased Research Network funding scheme which is part of the 50th Anniversary celebration of the Association and available in 2015 and 2016 only. As part of this Research Network Scheme, up to five Research Networks awarded based on quality are funded with up to £10,000 each in 2015 and an additional up to five Research Networks will be funded under the same scheme in 2016.

The full Terms and Conditions governing these increased Research Networks’ grants are available in the 2015- 2016 Research Network Handbook.
