Using evidence for policy: research synthesis (part 1)

Using evidence for policy: research synthesis (part 1)

This video was recorded during a masterclass offered at EU-AU-IIASA Evidence and Policy event, organised at JRC campus in Ispra. Scientists and policymakers from over 45 countries met to learn how to improve their skills in providing and receiving evidence for policymaking.

Follow all 5 parts of the video to learn the fundamentals of using research synthesis for better policymaking. Scientists can learn how to deal with different notions and standards of evidence and provide an overview of the balance of evidence of a topic. Policymakers can learn how to appreciate the different types and sources of evidence, separate higher from lower quality evidence and use research synthesis as a tool to enhance decision making.

You can also recreate this session in your own environment! For background material used in the class, visit: http://capacity4dev.ec.europa.eu/eu-au-evidence-and-policy
