What Works Evidence Centres

The What Works Network includes the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence and the Educational Endowment Foundation as well as four new independent institutions funded by the Government and the ESRC. The four new research centres focus on: crime reduction, local economic growth, ageing better and early intervention. The centres are designed to build an evidence base around each of the subject areas, and to use the evidence to inform government decision making. 

About Us

We aim to support public policy research across Cambridge University, working with colleagues in science, social science, the arts and humanities, to apply new thinking to public policy problems and promote research and analysis into the public policy process. We hope to connect and raise the profile of existing public policy related work across the University and support collaborative research that includes policy development in a range of subject areas. 

Contact us if you are interested in joining the initiative or would like to know more.
