Qualitative & Quantitative Approaches to Measuring Policy Impact of Research

Activity: Talks and presentationsConference presentations


There is a considerable body of literature discussing the impact of research and knowledge on growth, economy, society, environment, etc. There is a separate discussion on the impact of knowledge production and management on policy. In today’s political climate, when policy decisions are questioned and confidence in public institutions, expertise and evidence is under threat, it is vital to understand better the impact of knowledge and science on policymaking. How can we measure such an impact? How can such measurements help demonstrate the importance of evidence informed policy?
