PolicyLink strengthens existing Faculty of Arts leadership in policy‐related research and external engagement through enhanced visibility, support, and coordination
PolicyLink aims to cultivate and support strong links between high‐quality academic expertise and a diverse set of policy‐relevant partners and processes in ways that directly inform policy improvements across a wide range of substantive policy areas.
It does this by fostering robust, visible, and accessible networks of policy‐oriented researchers and their external partners, providing those networks with tailored institutional support.
Researchers benefit from specialised skills training, mentoring, small grant opportunities, and new forms of professional recognition.
External partners benefit from user‐friendly ways to locate, and liaise with, wide‐ranging policy‐oriented research expertise across the Faculty.
