The Heseltine Institute brings together expertise to impact public policies for cities

About us

The Heseltine Institute’s mission is to be a non-partisan, internationally recognised research institute and thought leader, bringing together expertise from across the University and policy communities, to co-create, impact and influence public policies for tomorrow’s cities.

  • Providing thought leadership, consultancy and advice
  • Convening and hosting events, including conferences, policy provocations, workshops and seminars
  • Building and strengthening academic-practitioner networks
  • Developing capacity building and providing training courses
