PolicyLink strengthens the existing leadership of the University’s Faculty of Arts in policy‐related research and external engagement, focusing on enhanced visibility, coordination, and support
PolicyLink cultivates strong links between high‐quality academic expertise and policy‐relevant partners in ways that directly inform policy improvements across a wide range of substantive policy areas.
PolicyLink fosters robust, visible, and accessible networks of policy‐oriented researchers and their external partners, providing those networks with tailored and flexible support.
Within PolicyLink, researchers benefit from strong networks, focused mentoring, skills training, small grant opportunities, and institutional support.
External partners benefit from user‐friendly ways to locate, and liaise with, policy‐oriented researchers across a wide range of disciplines within the Faculty of Arts.
