Using Evidence: What Works?

On 12 April we launched the findings of what actually works when it comes to getting research used, following a systematic review of the 'science of using science' undertaken by the EPPI-Centre at UCL.  Read our discussion paper, view a round up of our launch event, held at the Wellcome Trust, or watch videos from the evening.



Alliance appointed to help scope Nuffield family justice observatory

We are delighted to announce that following a competitive tender the Alliance has been appointed to carry out a scoping study for a new family justice observatory.  In a partnership lead by Professor Karen Broadhurst at Lancaster University, and including Research in Practice and the Centre for Child and Family Research at Loughbrough University, the study will establish the purpose, functions, and delivery options for a family justice observatory.  The 18-month project will commence in June 2016 and further details are available on the Nuffield Foundation website.
