Skills Map for Evidence-informed Policymaking
JRC would like to thank everybody who actively participated in the JRC workshop on skills for evidence-informed policymaking in Brussels on March 17. We have integrated your feedback into a professional development framework for addressing the practical skillset needed to increase the impact of research evidence on policymaking, which contributes to better informed policymaking. Our primary focus is on the collective skillset in boundary-spanning organisations at the evidence-policy interface.
As informing policy through evidence is a non-linear process constituting only a fraction of the broader policy influences and processes, the set of collective skills needed to perform in this area is fairly broad. The professional development framework consists of eight training modules (may be sub-divided with different courses), each module addressing a specific part of the collective skillset required to increase the impact of research evidence on policymaking
We would greatly value your comments and suggestions to the skills map, and if possible, if you could provide them by May 29 either by submitting your general comments below and/or directly in the attached document using track-changes.
Lene Topp, JRC
