Impact: Political impacts, Societal impacts


Professor Liz Richardson’s research on bottom-up ways to govern towns and cities has directly influenced public policy and individual organisations in Greater Manchester (GM). The research has:
1. Directly contributed to the adoption of the principle of ‘co-production’ as a policy across the work of the Greater Manchester Combined Authority (GMCA).
2. Embedded ‘social value’ in procurement policy in Greater Manchester.
3. Assisted in developing a local energy market in the city region to reduce carbon emissions.
4. Led to the adoption of co-production by a local charity.
