Sciencewise evaluates all its activities to identify impacts, share good practice and demonstrate the value of public dialogue. The evaluation reports of individual public dialogue projects are all published, and there have been regular evaluations of the Sciencewise programme overall.
In recent years, we have focused more on regularly monitoring and reporting on the impacts of new and past public dialogue projects, and the impacts of the wider work of the programme – especially where the work has influenced policy and policy makers.
We have produced a series of summaries that trace the policy impacts of some recent and past public dialogue projects.
We have also been producing monthly updates on the impacts on policy of public dialogue projects completed with support from Sciencewise and the wider impacts of the Sciencewise programme on policy and policy makers, as well as examples of other impacts of the Sciencewise programme, and citations and references to Sciencewise work in others’ publications. You will find the relevant information in the categories below. In each category you will be able to find a list of recent impact headlines and by clicking on the headline you will be able to read the detailed evidence supporting the headline.
