Since 2009, we have pioneered new ways of bringing together public policy professionals and academics to learn from each other, building relationships based on mutual understanding, respect and trust. The experience and diversity of this unique network provides fresh perspectives and critical challenges to conventional thinking, and helps research from all disciplines contribute more effectively to society.
Our workshops, seminars, lectures and annual conference bring together policy professionals and researchers to discuss and debate high-priority public policy issues.
The Policy Fellowships Programme represents CSaP’s distinctive approach, based on addressing the questions which policy makers identify.
CSaP's research focuses on the relationship between science and policy and the role of evidence and expertise in government.
CSaP's professional development opportunities provide early-career researchers with the necessary skills and confidence to work outside their own area of expertise.
Our workshops provide a forum to cross examine and re-evaluate issues that are of direct relevance to policy makers.
We help academics increase the policy impact of their work by facilitating meaningful connections through our workshops and Fellowships.
"By building networks of evidence and expertise for public policy, the Centre for Science and Policy can make a real difference to how government meets the biggest challenges we face today."
