UCL Public Policy

UCL is proud of our research excellence, which both generates applicable knowledge and expands the potential of human thought and action. In addition, we want to ensure that this excellence benefits society.

The UCL Public Policy Strategy aims to enhance the impact of our research by improving our engagement with public policy.

Academic research and expertise can play a vital role in informing public policy, to ensure that policy is robust, thoroughly considered, and has the greatest chance of success. UCL believes that as a leading university, we have an obligation to ensure that public policy takes account of the latest knowledge and evidence. 

The UCL Public Policy Strategy thus aims to strengthen links between UCL researchers and policy-makers and to provide specific opportunities for engagement, including through a policy secondment scheme.

UCL Public Policy also holds public events on policy issues and supports specific policy-oriented research activity and briefings.
