ADR UK Strategic Hub
The ADR UK partnership is coordinated by a Strategic Hub based at the Economic and Social Research Council (ESRC), with staff in London and Swindon. Headed by Dr Emma Gordon as director, the Hub is a small core team which provides strategic leadership to facilitate effective data acquisition, promote impact and create wider recognition of the potential benefits of research using administrative data.
As well as providing organisational leadership for the ADR UK partnership, the Strategic Hub manages a dedicated research budget for commissioning projects using administrative data in line with ADR UK’s research themes.
The Hub convenes and engages key stakeholders from government, academia and beyond to collaborate on shaping strategic priorities, delivering impactful research and promoting the benefits of using administrative data.
The Strategic Hub will also coordinate and lead public engagement activities at a UK level. These will aid us in developing and maintaining public understanding of the benefits associated with the use of administrative data for research. They will also help us to gauge public opinion regarding the use of administrative data in order to inform ADR UK’s work, to ensure it is in line with what’s important to people living in the UK and is conducted in a way the public is comfortable with.
