RCUK commissioned insight on public audiences

RCUK commissioned an independent contractor, ComRes, to undertake work that enables the Research Councils individually and collectively to:

  • better tailor their communications and engagement activities to be audience-led
  • track long-term trends in changing attitudes, sentiment and engagement, and use this to assess the success of activities and refine approaches as necessary.
