Welcome to CAPE

Capabilities in Academic Policy Engagement (CAPE) is a knowledge exchange and research project that explores how to support effective and sustained engagement between academics and policy professionals across the higher education sector.

CAPE is a partnership between UCL and the universities of Cambridge, Manchester, Northumbria and Nottingham, in collaboration with the Government Office for Science, the Parliamentary Office for Science & Technology, Nesta, and the Transforming Evidence Hub. CAPE is funded by Research England.

We believe that policy which is informed by evidence is stronger, more effective, and provides better value for public spending. By using research expertise we can make a positive difference to the UK economy, our wellbeing and to the world around us.
