A Fund that provides risk free resources for ‘discovery’ engagements – that is, engagements that are a little more experimental compared to tried and proven methods.
What it might look like: Potentially a three step process: 1 - Agencies might propose an engagement for funding; 2 - a committee would vet proposals; and 3 - then agree to fund a proposal.
Why the contribution is important
Sometimes tried and proven engagements like putting information on a website or launching an issues paper isn’t the best or only tool for the job. But doing it differently can seem risky or too resource-consuming. This fund will help encourage people who want to do things differently, but feel it’s too hard without a bit of extra help.
