What 10 questions should we put to evidence for policy experts?

What 10 questions should we put to evidence for policy experts?

We plan to interview leading thinkers and practitioners in the evidence and policy field and make the short videos available on the Community.  We would like to develop a standard set of ten questions that will stand the test of time to ask all experts.

Let us know what you think about these possible questions:

  1. Who are you?
  2. How did you become interested in evidence for policy?
  3. Why is evidence-informed policy important?
  4. What is the most common misconception about evidence-informed policy?
  5. What are the most common mistakes made by researchers or policymakers?
  6. What is the single most important advice to researchers/scientists who want to have policy impact?
  7. How do you change minds with facts and evidence?
  8. How should you communicate uncertainty about the evidence?
  9. How do you measure the policy impact of evidence?
  10. Who or What are your "must-reads"?


Who would you like us to interview?
