Policy Impact: a ‘How to’ guide for researchers

last modified Mar 02, 2017 05:02 PM
Read our practical guide for researchers detailing what policy impact is, why it may be relevant to your research, how to go about it, and what resources there are at Cambridge to help you.

There are many ways in which academic research can impact on public policy. This guide introduces researchers to the main types of policy making bodies, as well as the channels through which research may feed into policy processes, including at regional, national and international level. The guide includes tips for early career researchers, writing for policy, and support from university offices.

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.
