Project: Translation across borders: exploring the use, relevance and impact of academic research in the policy process

This report summarises the learning from a project funded by the AHRC which worked at the interface between central government policy and academic research. The project’s primary purpose was to enhance the policy impact of the Connected Communities (CC) programme, both directly and by exploring ways to overcome barriers to impact. It started from the assumption that collectively the CC projects have generated much policy-relevant knowledge, including from projects which did not have an explicit focus on or interest in policy.
