Leicester selected to provide government policy advice

Leicester research expertise has been selected to support policymaking by government departments across Europe.

Our University has been appointed to provide policy advice to UK and EU government departments via three new framework agreements, establishing the University’s College of Social Sciences, Arts and Humanities as one of their key suppliers of research services. 

The three framework agreements will involve:

  • A team made up of the Schools of Management, Education, Economics, Sociology and Health Sciences will be providing Research and Evaluation projects for the Department of Business Innovation & Skills;
  • A team from the Leicester Law School, headed by Professor Adam Cygan, will be providing advice on civil law to the European Parliament;
  • Dr Giuseppe A. Veltri (Department of Media & Communication) and Dr Briony Pulford (School of Psychology), who will be working with the London School of Economics and other partners supplying research and consultancy in Behavioural Studies to the Consumer Protection Programme run by a Directorate of the European Commission.
