Support for researchers

Public Policy|Southampton is proud to have worked with countless researchers from across the institution, at all levels in their academic journey, to support them with a journey towards policy engagement. Our researchers have briefed various Members of Parliament on their research, been appointed as specialist advisors to Government committees, attended UN level conferences and more.

We support this through capacity building activities such as our impact training programme, our tailored impact toolkit and guidance for ways to engage. We assist researchers from their application for funding through to their dissemination to policymakers. Consult us on your Pathways to Impact and contact us to discuss how we can support you with your research project.
