The Centre for Governance, Regulation and Industrial Strategy (CGR&IS) at Bath acts as a catalyst and facilitator for research and policy development in the regulation of markets.

As a leading research centre at the University, we bring together researchers and practitioners with a shared interest in ensuring markets, regions and organisations are run effectively, efficiently, lawfully and in the public interest.

Through our events, publications and policy work, we provide an effective platform for debate on the design and implementation of effective governance structures, and forms of control and regulation.

Our research in this field has wide ranging applications and benefits in markets such as financial services, pensions, public service delivery, health, education and the environment.
