UCL is to lead a £3.9 million national collaboration to drive academic policy engagement. The three-year Capabilities in Academic Policy Engagement (CAPE) project aims to foster and support academic engagement with policy professionals, and enable greater understanding and cooperation between universities, national government, parliament, and regional and local authorities.

CAPE will be delivered with input and support from the Parliamentary Office for Science & Technology, the Government Office for Science, the Alliance for Useful Evidence, and the Transforming Evidence hub.

Crucially, the project will engage policy stakeholders and other universities across England. This will ensure the project addresses policy issues beyond Westminster and reflects the diversity of England’s communities. By working in partnership, it is hoped that both researchers and policy professionals will be able to connect experts in their field more quickly, and co-develop effective interventions based on reliable evidence.
