The Alliance of Science: Evidence Synthesis for Public Policy

What is evidence synthesis?

How does it benefit public policy?

And what’s in it for research and researchers?


By exploring case studies from a range of research and policy areas, this seminar will explore these and related questions, with a view to encouraging and enabling more researchers across the University to engage in evidence synthesis for public policy.


Speakers include Dr Ella Adlen, Professor Sir John Beddington CMG, Dr Claire Craig CBE, Professor Christl Donnelly CBE, Professor Sir Charles Godfray CBE, Dame Helen Ghosh DCB, Professor Carl Heneghan, Dr Kamal Mahtani and Professor Richard Wakeford (University of Manchester)

'Accurate synthesis of existing information is the most important single offering by academics to the policy process.' (Chris Whitty)
