The SRI supported its first Cambridge-based workshop on 11th April, in conjunction with the University's Impact Acceleration Account. The workshops brought together policy makers and academics to discuss the proposed contract to build a nuclear power station at Hinkley Point C. In addition to the two SRI co-chairs, those taking part included the chair of the House of Commons Energy Select Committee, a leading independent consultant on energy policy, and academics in the fields of energy economics, private law, EU law and public law. You can read Professor Simon Deakin's blog about the workshop discussion points and hear David Howarth on the Today Programme on May 6th talking about the issue.

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.
