QCAP Success in Recent bid for Hub for Local Policy Innovation Partnerships

Queen’s Communities and Place is delighted to be part of the successful team led by University of Birmingham in the recent UKRI competition for £3.6m for a Strategic Co-ordination Hub for Local Policy Innovation Partnerships (LPIP) across the UK.

Queen’s joins colleagues from University of Manchester, University of Glasgow, University of Exeter, University of York, University of South Wales, London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine as well as colleagues from Involve and the National Co-ordinating Centre for Public Engagement.  The hub seeks to address nationwide issues through local partnership and place. The LPIP Hub will develop a programme of capacity-building activities looking at the thematic challenges places face and what works in place partnerships.

The LPIP Hub is designed to lead to a step-change in the quality and impact of the evidence created by universities and their local place partners.  The initiative will run until the end of 2026.
