Driving the exchange of ideas

The York Policy Engine

It has never been more important to work together to facilitate change and create lasting impact. The York Policy Engine (TYPE) is designed to support collaboration between York academics, as experts in their respective fields, and our policy colleagues locally, nationally, and internationally.

Within TYPE we offer resources for academics to engage constructively with policymakers. This includes a comprehensive support and training programme that focuses on our belief that policymaking, at all levels, should be informed by high quality and up-to-date, research-based evidence. We also offer concise policy briefings for policymakers that reflect York’s research strengths.

The York Policy Engine is a cross-faculty initiative, seeking to serve all stakeholders at the University of York.

If you are a York researcher, or a policymaker interested in what we can offer, we invite you to explore our pages and get in touch.
