'Evidence-Based Policy - From Development to Delivery' seminar at UCL

Policymakers ignore the evidence. Academics ignore the politics. Then the public ignores them both.

EIPPEE project partner meeting

The EPPI-Centre (Institute of Education) is hosting a meeting of 35 partners from 23 countries across Europe about the issue of evidence informed policy and practice in education in Europe.  This meeting is part of the recently successful bid to the European Commission. 

IEE inaugural conference - Empowering educators with evidence


How using evidence can save you money and raise outcomes

Institute for Effective Education, Berrick Saul Building, University of York, Heslington, York, YO10 5DD

We know a lot about what works in schools, but do we apply this in practice? How do we translate academic studies into practical applications for busy teachers? How do educators facing a difficult problem in a school, use the insights from research? How do policy makers facilitate this process?

Education Media Centre – Parliamentary reception and briefing event

Over the past few months, the team developing the EMC have consulted all parts of the education sector – policy makers, journalists, educationalists, researchers – and have received unanimous support for the proposals. 

Moving forward, we are now focusing on fundraising activities to get the EMC off the ground. To kick things off we are organising a briefing event in parliament on 22 November (6.30 – 8pm) to raise awareness around the EMC project.
