This Nesta Sparks: Toolbox session focuses on how to create and grow an evidence centre. Over the last 10 years there has been a growth in evidence centres - such as What Works Centres and an Evidence Quarter - funded by national governments, foundations, philanthropists and others. But how can you make a difference on the ground using research and evidence? What is the best way to set up an organisation that is sustainable and influential? This session aims to share the lessons of past and current evidence intermediary institutions.

You’ll hear from Jo Casebourne, Chief Executive, Early Intervention Foundation and Michael Sanders, Chief Executive What Works for Children's Social Care, and Hasan Bakhshi, Executive Director, Creative Industries Policy and Evidence Centre.

Watch our interview with Robyn Mildon, Executive Director, Centre for Evidence and Implementation and Ruth Stewart, Director Africa Centre for Evidence.
