Our partners

The scale and impact of NEST Insight’s research depends on the number of organisations that work with us and the level of funding we raise. Organisations can work with us and sponsor the NEST Insight programme as a whole, becoming a strategic partner, or contribute their time and resources towards a specific research project. For more information on current and future opportunities, email insight@nestcorporation.org.uk

Invesco became a major strategic partner in July 2019 to help shape our programme of work through sponsorship, the contribution of its deep industry expertise and insights, and by helping the programme to reach a wider audience.
