Second 'Policy Impact' guide for researchers published

last modified May 12, 2017 09:20 AM
The second guide in our ‘how to’ series focuses on how to evidence and record academic impact on policy.

The second guide provides helpful summaries of the ways in which academic research can impact on policy, the types of policy impact that are measured by university research assessment frameworks (such as REF2014) and how researchers might go about collecting and recording data on the policy impact of their research.

Combined with our introductory ‘how to’ guide, these materials are intended to provide researchers from any discipline with some introductory terms and definitions on policy impact, tips on how to go about engaging policy makers with research, and sources of further information and help.

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.
