University of Glasgow
Founded in 1451, the University of Glasgow is the fourth oldest university in the English-speaking world. We are one of the top 100 of the world's universities and have been named Scottish University of the Year by The Times and The Sunday Times Good University Guide 2018. With over 2,000 active researchers and with a long history of achievement, University of Glasgow researchers have transformed policy and practice, driven commercial innovations and shaped debate and understanding across a range of fields and at every level-local, national and global.
Based at the University of Glasgow in the College of Social Sciences, Policy Scotland’s mission is to generate and provide a space for local, nation and international policy debates in fields where research excellence at Glasgow is already taking place – in crime, housing, disability, transport, public health economic and employment policy, education, welfare reform and research specific to the Scottish context. We foster co-operation between academics, practitioners and policy makers and pool this collective expertise to generate better evidence, advise the policymaking process and engage a wide variety of audiences.
