Funding opportunity coming soon: 20 PhDs using linked administrative data

We will invite Doctoral Training Partnerships to apply for funding to host up to four supervisor-led PhD studentships each, through a supervisor-led competition that will run from early September 2022 to the end of October 2022. The successful candidates will join a pilot programme to develop exemplar PhD case studies to promote wider use of administrative data for research. 

These PhDs will have the potential to generate research leading to better informed policy decisions and more effective public services, in areas from improving education and healthcare to tackling crime.

Available support

As part of this funding call and for all Doctoral Training Partnerships who are looking to increase studentships using linked administrative data, ADR UK can provide the following support: 

  • Information about linked administrative data including the types of questions it could answer and the breadth of topics it is relevant to 

  • Support to access the data through relationships with data owners and data processors 

  • Access to user groups or networks which will include current users of the data 

  • Provision of synthetic data 

  • Access to new courses, specific to data and generic skills 

  • Promotional materials including explainer videos and webinars 

Applicant webinar

ADR UK will host an applicant webinar on 20 September 2022 at 11am to describe the application process, requirements and answer questions. Register via Eventbrite.
