In PPR we treat impact and knowledge exchange as essential parts of our research agenda. We are developing innovative forms of public exchange work and strong relationships with non-HEI agencies and communities, as ways of stimulating new questions and research agendas. All our areas of research and associated centres and groups have links with external bodies that use academic research in relation to religion, health, policy, peace, and other issues.Impact
