Good Practice Grants 2020

Good Practice Grants (GPGs) provide Advance HE members with an opportunity to develop and share innovative practice with us and the wider HE sector.

Overview

We are looking to help our members develop and share innovative practice which might not otherwise attract full funding support within a university or higher education college.

Previously, funding was available in the form of Advance HE's Small Development Projects (SDPs), which were launched in 2004. In 2020 we are now able to offer this potential funding to all Advance HE Members in the UK and Ireland in the updated form of Good Practice Grants.   

Following the successful adoption of new formats for SDP outputs in 2019, including infographics, film and animation, we are looking for projects that utilise similarly creative approaches and mediums.
