Researchers and Policymakers working together for a better London for everyone
London Research and Policy Partnership (LRaPP) is a new partnership aimed at promoting greater synergy between London government and the academic research community.
The Partnership is evolving among movements bringing universities and local communities, cities and regions closer together - the ‘civic universities agenda’. It encourages universities to use their expertise and organisational resources to address pressing public policy challenges.
There are many examples of London's academics and public sector working together. Yet, most of these relationships develop in an ad hoc way. We take a systematic approach through proactive and sustained engagement between the university and government sectors.
