Third Stream Income:

* At the University of Bristol, part of my job role was facilitating  and supporting the third stream income efforts of colleagues.

Grants:

* CI on a major Horizon 2020 grant, held at Loughborough University.

* Michael Goodman and I won a successor grant to continue and expand the ‘Learning Lessons from the Secret Past’ project – August 2014.

* Michael Goodman and I won an AHRC grant titled ‘Learning Lessons from the Secret Past’ – March 2011, which finished in May 2013.

* I held, with Philip Davies (Brunel) an ESRC Research Workshops Grant for a series of events titled ‘Intelligence into the 21st Century’ (2008-9)

* My PhD was funded by the ESRC Doctoral Research Scheme (2000-3).

* As a matter of routine I apply twice yearly for research council, or charity grants. In this last academic session I applied for British Academy, and ESRC grants.

Consultancy:

I have provided evidence to the House of Commons, and to the European Parliament.
