UCL Department of Science, Technology, Engineering and Public Policy


Policy Impact Unit

The Policy Impact Unit (PIU) provides professional policy engagement expertise and skills to help increase the use of research-based evidence by policymakers.

Good policy is informed by good evidence. The Policy Impact Unit collaborates with researchers in the Faculty of Engineering Sciences (FES) at UCL to design bespoke policy engagement strategies that have real impact. Using innovative and adaptive approaches, the PIU makes policy engagement accessible for researchers and increases the use of FES research in the policymaking process.
