The UK Evidence Ecosystem

After consultation with our members in autumn 2015 we're now able to unveil our interactive map of the UK evidence ecosystem for social policy, developed in partnership with TSIP.   We hope the 'map' makes navigating the terrain of evidence that bit easier, and that you may discover some new organisations that can support you in producing, disseminating or using evidence.  Let us know what you think!


Evidence transparency framework

On 21 October Institute for Government, in partnership with the Alliance for Useful Evidence and Sense About Science, launched an evidence transparency framework. The tool is designed to allow anyone to rate government departments on how transparent they are in the use of evidence in policy decisions.  The accompanying report, Show your workings, explains how the tool was developed and sets out its recommendations to government to increase transparency in how policy decisions are made.
