The PEC offers three partnership models for policymakers who want to help shape our research agenda and deliver our work programme.

For more information, contact us at enquiries@pec.ac.uk. Please note that all partnerships are subject to capacity and strategic fit.


Become part of the PEC Network

Network membership is open to anyone who wants to engage in the PEC’s programme of events to shape our agenda, share knowledge, build expertise and network with those with a common interest.


Become a Research Partner

Research Partners co-curate events on topics of shared interest, and have access to PEC experts to support their own events and activities and advise on policy design and evaluation. They also have the chance to collaborate on specific research projects. Partners contribute financially or in-kind in terms of staff time or data.


Become a Research Co–commissioner

Research Co-commissioners are those organisations that share a common agenda with the PEC and who benefit from co-designing and co-commissioning research and co-producing activities like seminars and workshops. They make financial and in-kind contributions to the PEC.
