The University performs cutting-edge research with international impact across our four faculties: Science; Engineering and Design; Humanities and Social Sciences and the School of Management.
The University’s interdisciplinary expertise provides perspectives which inform key areas of policy, including healthcare, social policy, Universal Credit, basic income, well-being, mental health, loneliness, education, behaviour change, Artificial Intelligence, innovation, energy technologies and sustainability, the circular economy and many others. In addition, our School of Management is one of the UK’s leading research-intensive management schools.
Drawing on the insights of our experts forms an important part of the Policy Fellowship experience. Our research informs new approaches to organisational management and service delivery, enhances professional and corporate practice and supports changes in policy.
Engaging with academics across the University inspires Policy Fellows with new ideas and perspectives. In this way the Policy Fellowship Programme drives innovation, helping Fellows apply new tools, models and frameworks to improve the ways in which policy is developed and delivered.
There is no charge for participating in the Policy Fellowship Programme.
