Welcome to the Institute for Policy and Engagement

The Institute connects Nottingham's world-leading researchers with the public and policymakers to share insight and solve problems. We work with academic experts from across the university who want to create real impact by providing training, advice and expertise.

Through these partnerships we will tackle together the most compelling challenges locally, nationally and globally.
