CSaP's mission is to improve public policy through the more effective use of evidence and expertise. We do this by creating opportunities for public policy professionals and academics to learn from each other.

We convene our network to provide fresh perspectives and critical challenges to conventional thinking.

Through our workshops, Fellowships and research programme, we have pioneered new ways of bringing academia and public policy together.

CSaP in numbers

Our programmes, workshops, and professional development activities provide opportunities for policy professionals and researchers to discuss and debate high-priority public policy issues.

"Handling risk is a vital task for any government. By building timely and relevant connections between government and academia, the Centre for Science and Policy is making a significant contribution to improving the use of evidence in public policy."

Sir Mark Walport, Government Chief Scientific Adviser
