NIHR Policy Research Unit in Behavioural Science
The aim of the NIHR Policy Research Unit (PRU) in Behavioural Science is to inform government policy on health, preventing ill-health and health systems. We use behavioural science evidence, theory and methods to support decision-making.
Established in 2019, the Unit is a collaboration between Newcastle University, University College London, University of Warwick, and the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine. We have a collaborating network of experts in public health and public and patient involvement (PPI).
We bring together researchers with a range of disciplinary backgrounds and expertise, to support policy makers in policy design, development, evaluation and implementation. We work closely with the Department of Health and Social Care and in collaboration with other Policy Research Units. This enables us to provide the best evidence and advice, in a timely way, for the benefit of the public and patients.
Working with Government
The Unit works with Government, in particular the Department for Health and Social Care, and government and arms-length bodies.

Keeping in touch
Sometimes our research projects may take several months to get started, but we’ll aim to keep in touch with you via the VOICE platform with regular project updates.
In future we hope to develop a newsletter for our contributors. Please email us at: [email protected] to sign up.
This project is funded by the National Institute for Health Research (NIHR) [Policy Research Unit in Behavioural Science (project reference PR-PRU-1217-20501)].
