Local Policy Lab

This pilot project is a collaboration with Oxford Brookes University and Oxfordshire County Council, and aims to support local policy makers to make better, more evidence-based decisions on areas including health, education and the environment.

A small pilot in the first year would focus on one thematic area, using a cohort of 3-4 graduate students to work closely with the council to conduct structured research and data-analysis. If successful, the Lab would aim to scale the programme in subsequent years.
