The academic year 2018-9 is being used to launch a bespoke version of the Applied History project in the UK: the Engelsberg Programme for Applied History, Grand Strategy and Geopolitics (in the abbreviated form of the Engelsberg Applied History Programme, or EAHP). It will see the Centre for Grand Strategy and the Cambridge Centre for Geopolitics collaborate on a shared programme of seminars, public lectures and conferences, the creation of a new research agenda and the building of connections with the policy-making world. Long-term, those involved in the EAHP hope to make a major contribution to the creation of a virtual Faculty of Applied History. They also have a particular interest in the creation of a World Order Study Group, collaborating with like-minded institutions in the United States and elsewhere.
