About CSaP

Pioneering new ways of bringing academia and government together

CSaP’s mission is to improve policy making through the more effective use of evidence and expertise. Since our launch in 2009, we have pioneered a particular approach to bringing science and policy together. We forge relationships based on mutual understanding and trust, and build networks of people with shared values of intellectual curiosity and public service. From this starting point we curate open and exploratory conversations to address public policy.

"I've seen the impact of CSaP's work at close quarters over many years - I encourage academics and policy makers to engage for the good of research, policy and society."
