We’ve had a busy year in Policy&Practice, completing a number of long running projects such as the Northern Rock Foundation Third Sector Trends study which started in 2008 and the evaluation of O2Think Big which has been running since 2010.
But we’re starting new ones too. The Policy Research Group have a growing reputation for their work on arts, culture and event evaluation. New work on Japanese inward investment in North East England is starting to build momentum with the appointment of a PhD student to help us out with that in January 2016 in collaboration with Durham Business School and the Institute for Local Governance.
And some projects are continuing, such as Fred Robinson and Ian Zass-Ogilvie’s work on asset transfer in County Durham; and the new ESRC funded study on improving relationships between the public sector and third sector run in collaboration with the Institute for Local Governance.
