MetroPolis is a research-led think tank established by academics at Manchester Metropolitan University.

It presents an opportunity to amplify the fresh ideas and policy-related insights of our research whilst building the capacity of our academics to engage with policy makers.

MetroPolis is led by Professor of Evaluation and Policy Analysis, Chris Fox, External Affairs Advisor Michael Taylor and colleagues from the University’s Office of Research and Knowledge Exchange. The University’s Chancellor Lord Mandelson is convenor of the initiative.
