Our impact

We believe OPENspace research should, and does, make a difference.

We have established an international reputation for multi-disciplinary studies of the highest academic rigour that cut across a number of key policy areas; providing the evidence for decision makers to advance ‘joined up’ thinking and inclusive legislation.

We address strategic research needs and advise a range of public agencies and professional groups, from the people who plan our urban and rural areas to those tackling safety and crime, promoting tourism, enabling wellbeing and advocating environmental justice.

We are proud of our contribution to international knowledge exchange, engagement with non-academic audiences and the take-up of our findings by the World Health Organization, amongst many others.
