Synopsis:The newly launched ESRC Productivity Insights Network is a multidisciplinary network of social scientists engaged with public, private, and third sector partners, our aim is to change the tone of the productivity debate in theory and practice. We are keen to engage with ISBE members who are engaged in work relating to the performance and productivity of small and entrepreneurial business and social enterprise. Part of the work of the network is to administer a scheme of small grants to support innovative new work in the area. Our first call for projects, across a wide range of themes, £10k to £50k, is now live with a deadline of Friday 5th July.
