CREST funding opportunity

Ella Rhodes reports.

After successfully funding 10 projects last year, the Centre for Research and Evidence on Security Threats (CREST), led by Lancaster University, is seeking to fund innovative, forward-looking, economic, behavioural and social science research.

Individual researchers and research teams are eligible to apply. Successful applicants will become part of CREST’s larger research programme, benefiting from resources for translating and communicating evidence for impact.

Applicants should propose work that addresses one of 15 topics, including behaviour change, information disclosure in online or virtual environments, and enhancing long-term memory for complex events. The funding is either for short projects, (up to six months), and long projects (no more than 12 months).
