How to … build reciprocity

In partnership with DCMS, the Centre for Cultural Value has produced a ‘How to’ guide for researchers seeking to shape public policy through their research.

The guide provides useful insights into how policy-makers use research and the ways in which both researchers and policy makers can work together to maximise research impact. The guide signposts researchers to helpful resources and highlights key government evaluation and assessment standards for public policy making.

Drawing upon insights gained through research placements and interviews with UK government policy advisors and representatives, the guide provides advice to researchers about government research priorities, evaluation criteria and how to make contact with key policy stakeholders.

The How to ... build reciprocity guide will be available to download soon. Please join the Centre for Cultural Value mailing list for updates about the Centre's work, opportunities and the latest resources.
