Universities Policy Engagement Network

(3 December 2018)

The Universities Policy Engagement Network, UPEN, is a network of UK universities who are working together to increase the public policy impact from their research.

UPEN offers a dedicated contact point for policymakers, and a collective response to requests for evidence.

It organises knowledge exchange events with government, parliament, devolved bodies, and identifies mechanisms to take forward specific projects.

UPEN is also developing best practice amongst universities in policy engagement activities, and will act as a champion for this relatively new role within universities.

UPEN has launched thier new website which can be found at the link below;
