The Rural Policy Centre was established in November 2007 to be a leading authority on the impact of current and future policies on rural businesses and communities.
The Centre operates as a focus for research in rural policy,
informing and contributing to policy debates through conducting research
projects, issuing regular briefings based on relevant research and
recent policy developments and organising high profile events.
The Centre's work covers a broad range of different issues,
including CAP Reform, agricultural innovation and productivity, animal
welfare, climate change and low carbon, food and drink and community development.
