SPRU - Science Policy Research Unit

SPRU influence up, according to Global Go To Think Tank Index

The 'Global Go To Think Tank Index Report 2014' places SPRU at number 8 globally in its listing of Science and Technology think tanks up from 10th in 2013. Published annually by the University of Pennsylvania (USA) since 2008, the report is designed to identify and recognise centres of excellence across the different areas of public policy research in every region of the world.  

SPRU's Director Professor Johan Schot said: "I am very proud of the work all our colleagues do here at SPRU and this report's findings reflect our high international standing and influence in science and technology policy and research. We are committed to delivering excellence in all that we do - across our multi-disciplinary research; engagement with stakeholders in government, industry and the third sector; and teaching our Masters and PhD degrees - so it's always rewarding when aspects of that work get major international recognition."
