Research Engagement with Public Policy

Researchers from across the University of Edinburgh engages with policy makers at all levels of government and legislative bodies for mutual benefit.

The Research Engagement and Impact Team helps build capacity for its researchers to engage with policymakers by:

  • Providing bespoke advice and support
  • Designing and delivering training events
  • Targeting and brokering opportunities
  • Providing internal funding schemes for knowledge exchange and engagement aimed at developing policy impact.
  • Providing dedicated internal resources on engaging with policymakers as part of our Engagement for Impact Hub

If you are a policymaker or perhaps a researcher looking to collaborate for public policy impact, our Policy Engagement with Research Manager, Shonagh McEwen would be delighted for you to get in touch. She can identify the best suited expertise, drawing on a network of colleagues across the university.
