CAPEcast is the podcast from the CAPE team where we have an in-depth discussion with those with whom we collaborate, getting into the knotty issues behind academic-policy engagement and exploring our learning and insights we are discovering about what works, how, why and when



We always try to explain common acronyms in public policy the first time we use them in our podcasts and try to say them in full throughout but sometimes we do forget. Here’s a list to help if you forget what they stand for:

CAPE – Capabilities in Academic-Policy Engagement
ARI – Areas of Research Interest
EDI – Equality Diversity and Inclusion
POST – Parliamentary Office of Science and Technology
APPG – All Party Parliamentary Group

If you come across any others while listening to our podcasts let us know.
