2020-21 CAPE Policy Fellows
The CAPE policy fellow programme is a flexible professional development programme for those who work in public policy, local and national government. It offers access to leading researchers across a range of disciplines at the CAPE partner universities, to support the development of evidence-informed policy, offer innovative career development pathways, and foster collaboration between academics and policy professionals.
CAPE policy fellows spend time meeting researchers at CAPE university partners based upon their research and policy questions.
If you are an academic at a CAPE university partner interested in talking to our policy fellows, please contact [email protected] and we can see whether your research areas align with any of our current fellows.
We will be advertising for our next cohort of fellows in November 2021. Sign up to our newsletter to be kept up-to-date with opportunities.
