    • Combining the strengths of UMIST and The Victoria University of Manchester Academic Research and Policy Making 1. Policy makers doing their own research discover papers and research reports that help them develop and formulate proposals. 2. Policy makers expressly commission research/consultancy. In many jurisdictions the courts may invite expert academic evidence and more actively seek out the fruits of research. 3. Policy makers invite individual academics to chair or be a member of a body set up to consider some aspect of government. 4. Independent organisations such as the Nuffield Council of Bioethics involve academics in their own review of policy. 5. Academics deliberately seek formal partnerships with policy makers in designing a research project. We initiate and not simply respond.
