The Open University and coordinating team, commissioned by Research Councils UK (RCUK), is leading a study on Understanding and Improving ‘Fair and Equitable Research Partnerships’ in Response to Global Challenges, and currently seeks participants to join focus groups and interviews.
Policy and research: It’s the relationships stupid
The evidence community is finally taking the relational and societal aspects of getting evidence into use seriously. James Georgalakis asks if donors, researchers, elected officials and policy professionals are ready to create research-policy partnerships that can deal with these social realities. Relationships should be built on trust, an understanding of our differences and where the sweet spot for collaboration exists.
This IDS Bulletin issue explores how partnerships focused on the production of policy-engaged research seek to achieve societal impact and the challenges involved. Draws on research funded by ESRC-DFID's Strategic Partnership.
