Using Research EvidenceWe have seen some useful free consultation and research resources recently, so we wanted to share them with you:

1) Nesta and the Alliance for Useful Evidence has produced a new guide Using research evidence – a practice guide. The publication has been designed to help improve the way people work by using evidence effectively.

2) Sciencewise has:

  • Recently piloted its Sounding Board tool which is used to gain rapid public input on challenging issues involving science and technology.
  • Piloted an event to understand whether one-off, public workshops could be a way of delivering useful information to policymakers, while also raising awareness of key issues.
  • Signposted a number of resources for people looking to gather views on policy issues.

3) The Independent Consultants Group (ICG), which we are members of, has launched a free service ‘Ask an expert‘ where you can send your research question to them and they will ask one of their members to respond within three days.
