Research knowledge translation for policy development: barriers and facilitators

Evidence-based policy-making requires evidence emanating from research to be accessible and presented in such a way that it fits the needs of policy-makers.

Based on concrete experiences of research conducted under the EU's 7th Framework Programme for Research and Technological Development, this workshop will explore the barriers and facilitators in knowledge translation. Theoretical approaches and international experience in this field will be shared.
