Networks and tools


The Nottingham Policy Research and Impact Network is a University-wide network of colleagues who, either as part of their role, or in a voluntary capacity, support researchers with impact-enhancing activities in the area of public policy.

The network has been created to bring together the diverse expertise, experience and interest in generating policy impact from research. Represented by predominantly professional services and business/research development staff from across the University, the network shares information and best practice.
