Local and Regional Policy Briefings

Recognising the transformative power of Bristol as a global civic university, we have a large number of research projects which address local and regional policy problems. Through working with our local policy partners, we co-design and work collaboratively to address local and regional challenges.

PolicyBristol is a team of experts connecting research with policymakers, ensuring that the University’s world class research base informs policy solutions. 

Managing a large Research England Policy Support Fund, we nurture exciting and meaningful projects across all disciplines which address complex and interconnected policy challenges, whether they are experienced at local, regional, national, or international level. Examples include tackling net zero, renewable energy, energy security, social mobility, housing affordability, climate resilience, water security, health inequalities, the growing mental health crisis and infectious disease modelling. 

Listed below are recent policy briefings which draw out research insights to underpin local and regional policy needs.
