Our research helps inform policymaking both in the UK and worldwide across a broad spectrum of academic disciplines. These range from areas such as science and innovation policy through to healthcare management, regional devolution and welfare policies.
Our academics engage across the highest levels of government, sitting on select committees and working groups, while being regularly commissioned to write reports for government departments in their specific research areas where they are recognised as leading authorities.
For instance our Manchester Institute of Innovation Research is a world-leading centre of excellence in the study of science, technology and innovation policy and management. Its mission to combine rigour with relevance lies at the heart of its engagement activities as it seeks to help policymakers understand the dynamics of science and innovation. For instance the Institute was recently commissioned by the UK Department for Business, Innovation and Skills as part of an ongoing review of government research establishments.
Our Health Services Research Centre is a leading authority on healthcare management, and most recently has been informing policy around the devolution of health and social care services in Greater Manchester.
And our academics are also at the forefront of changing working practices. For instance Professor Jill Rubery recently gave evidence to the Women and Equalities Select Committee on policies aimed at reducing the pay gap for women.
