Informing policy and practice

Research can benefit policy and practice in the public, private and voluntary sectors.

We seek to engage with local, national and international partners. Active research communities across the range of subject areas give us a breadth of knowledge and expertise on which we can advise and collaborate.

Academy of Government

The Academy of Government is committed to educating future leaders in the public and non-profit sectors; generating solutions to the most pressing public policy problems and producing high-quality research that impacts on policy and dependent public services locally, nationally and internationally.

Public Policy Network

The University’s Public Policy Network is a resource for individuals and organisations commissioning, developing, conducting and debating policy-relevant research. The webpage gives an overview of activities and some of the people and research centres involved in policy-relevant research in the University.

Expertise available

The Edinburgh Research Archive is a searchable database of research outputs from the University of Edinburgh, many of direct relevance to policy and practice. The websites for each of the College’s 11 schools give a flavour of the wide-ranging expertise available (see link below).
