In this episode we explore how evidence reaches decision-makers. Annette Boaz, co-lead of Transforming Evidence runs us through the formal systems used by decision-makers such as expert networks and advisory committees, or commissioned research or consultancy.
Increasingly, academics and universities are expected to participate in discussions about policy and practice. Our guest, Giulia Cuccato, from the UK's Government Office for Science chats to Geoff about the value of this and talks about what researchers can do to improve evidence production and use.
