About CSaP

Pioneering new ways of bringing academia and government together

CSaP’s mission is to help improve the quality of public policy making through the more effective use of evidence and expertise. CSaP starts with the questions from policy professionals and fosters networks between policy and science based on mutual understanding, respect and trust. The experience and diversity of our unique network provides fresh perspectives and critical challenges to conventional thinking, and helps research from all disciplines contribute more effectively to society.

"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."
