Research Impact

Much of the research conducted in the School of Geography, Politics & Sociology has wider impact beyond academic life.

The School has a strong tradition of engaging with research users. We achieve this through direct involvement with policy debates within local, national and international government and working with groups and organisations in the public, private and third sector.

Projects across the School have been highlighted as excellent examples of impactful research on the University research website. These case studies include:

Researchers in the School are also actively involved in the Newcastle University societal challenge themes, which address the key social issues of ageing, sustainability and social renewal.
