Policy impact training

The Heseltine Institute has been commissioned through the University of Liverpool's ESRC Impact Accelerator Account to provide a programme of policy impact training over the next five years.

The Heseltine Institute will play a catalytic role in supporting and upskilling researchers to drive the translation of foundational research into policy through different pathways. This programme of activity is primarily aimed at academics working in social science disciplines at the University of Liverpool but is open to all researchers who want to engage in policy translational opportunities.

Upcoming sessions

Details of sessions will be here soon.
