For policymakers

The University of Sussex has a long history of influencing policy – locally, regionally, nationally and globally – through its world-leading research on a broad range of issues.

We pride ourselves on offering practical ideas, perspectives and solutions to ensure that our research delivers positive societal outcomes. Policy@Sussex acts as a central point of contact, providing policymakers with the insights and solutions they need.

What we offer

Our academic experts can employ their expertise and insights to:

  • anticipate future challenges
  • explain complex systems and explore different options
  • highlight problems with existing or proposed policies and suggest creative solutions
  • design new policies and strategies
  • provide bespoke insights on a specific issue, for example in response to requests for evidence.

We are able to communicate complex research findings for policy audiences. We frequently submit evidence to select committees, publish policy briefings and produce multi-media outputs that highlight key points and explain important concepts.
