The Covid-19 pandemic meant that decision-makers needed immediate access to the latest evidence to make informed policy responses. The crisis highlighted the need to be responsive in generating and drawing on existing high-quality evidence at a time when we need to make decisions clearly, quickly, and with certainty.
The CEDIL Conference 2022 (22-25 March, 2022) explored experiences and lessons learnt from experts around the world on generating and using evidence during a crisis. Innovative approaches, methods and themes were featured including looking at using big data and machine learning.
Research To Action (R2A) is a learning platform for anyone interested in maximising the impact of research and capturing evidence of impact.
The site publishes practical resources on a range of topics including research uptake, communications, policy influence and monitoring and evaluation. It captures the experiences of practitioners and researchers working on these topics and facilitates conversations between this global community through a range of social media platforms.
R2A is produced by a small editorial team, led by CommsConsult. We welcome suggestions for and contributions to the site.
