UCL STEaPP is the home of IPPO, a £2 million ESCRC funded centre that brings together research and policy to mitigate the social harms of COVID-19 and accelerate the UK’s recovery.
Through an international network of collaborators, IPPO gives politicians insights, evidence and analysis of global policy responses to COVID-19 to enable them to address the immediate social, economic and public health impacts and help communities get back on their feet.
The Policy Impact Unit (PIU) in UCL STEaPP provides professional policy engagement expertise and skills to help increase the use of research-based evidence by policymakers.
To mark the first two years of the PIU, the team have produced a report looking back at the key activities, achievements and strategic priorities for the PIU. You can read the report on the PIU pages.
