Research Projects

The Heseltine Institute undertakes research and consultancy to support the sustainable development of cities and city regions. Translating research into evidence-based policy solutions and practice is an important part of our approach.

City Conversation in Clubmoor

The City Conversation project involving the Heseltine Institute for Public Policy, Practice and Place at the University of Liverpool, Liverpool City Council and the MyClubmoor Partnership Board was funded from the UKRI’s enhancing place-based partnerships in public engagement programme. The project aimed to develop participatory approaches to community engagement that would lead to a better understanding of local issues and contribute to the design of more effective public services.
