Nottingham Civic Exchange aims to be the place to influence debate and discussion, we co-produce research and expert comment with NTU academics on a wealth of topics and share this information here.

We support academics and our partners to submit evidence to Parliamentary Select Committees and other Commissions and Inquiries and can support you to submit evidence in your area of expertise. We aim to keep up to date with current calls and welcome enquiries to support submissions from research groups, partners and individual academics. Submissions to governments can be a highly successful method of attracting impact for your research and was the single most cited example of research impact for REF 2014.
