Back in 2012 a team from IRISS took part in an international invited workshop on Evidence-informed practice: creativity and challenging times. Held in County Cavan in the Republic of Ireland, this was the third in a series based on a network of organisations from Australia, Canada, USA, UK, Ireland and Sweden.
Some of the papers from the workshop were published in a special issue of Evidence & Policy 10.4 (2014): Mapping the field in evidence-informed policy and practice: international perspectives. You can download the introduction to the special issue free of charge.
On Research Unbound we offer a pre-print version of the paper presented by the IRISS team (Alison Petch, Claire Lightowler, Lisa Pattoni and Ian Watson), with additional material on more recent projects.
