UPTAP Research in ESRC Publications

A number of UPTAP research projects have been cited in the recent ESRC publications ‘Britain Today’ and ‘Britain in 2008′.

The publications are a mixture of academic opinion pieces alongside informed journalistic writing. They are described as being entertaining, accessible and informative. They are widely available in high street shops nationwide.

We are very pleased to see that UPTAP research is becoming increasingly accessible to the public.
