Unlocking the Potential of Civic Collaboration: A review of research-policy engagement between the University of Leeds and Leeds City Council
The University of Leeds and Leeds City Council benefit from a long-established collaborative relationship, yet the full extent of this was not previously apparent. Leeds Social Sciences Institute embarked upon a review to fully understand the extent of collaborative working.

The aim was to help enhance the value and impact of the research and policy partnerships and maximise the benefits of collaborative working in responding to social, environmental and economic challenges facing the city. The Review included an online survey, mapping exercise, and interviews with professionals from both organisations who have prominent roles in working together to develop evidence-based policy.
The project was funded by a combination of Research England’s Quality-Related Strategic Priorities Fund (2019/20) Research programme to accelerate engagement between Universities and policy-makers and the ESRC Impact Acceleration Account that LSSI manages.
