The one-day Evidence2Action symposium on Wednesday 4 June is a chance for anyone interested to explore the link between research, policy and action. The symposium is being hosted by the Families Commission.
The increasing focus on how to improve the effective use of evidence in social sector decision-making, requires policymakers, practitioners and funders to make more informed decisions about what policies to develop and what services to fund.
The Evidence2Action symposium will help participants draw on practical examples of how to effectively use evidence to inform and implement future policy, practice and funding decisions. Evidence2Action can help identify activities we will and won’t do through knowing what works and what doesn’t.
The symposium aims to bridge the gap between those who produce research evidence, social policymakers and those who use the evidence.
Keynote speakers headlining include:
Dr Robyn Mildon, Director of Knowledge Exchange and Implementation at the Parenting Research Centre, Melbourne, Australia.
Dr Deborah Ghate, Chief Executive of the UK Colebrooke Centre for Evidence and Implementation
