In autumn 2015 we commissioned ICM unlimited to help us understand stakeholder perceptions of ESRC.

The research consists of:

  • 20 in-depth interviews with some of our key stakeholders
  • 277 online survey responses from a wider group of stakeholders

The research was carried out between November 2015 and January 2016, with the aim of better understanding how we are perceived externally and to gauge the level of support our stakeholders have for our work and remit, inform our future approaches and identify what ESRC can do to improve.

We would like to thank all the respondents who took part in the Communications and Engagement Perceptions research. Your time and honesty are much appreciated and the views captured in this research will feed into our ongoing stakeholder communications and engagement work, as well as help define our future communication strategies.
