Our work programme

The Centre undertakes three main kinds of work.  It:

  • supports Welsh Government Ministers to identify, access and use authoritative evidence and independent expertise that can help inform and improve policy;
  • works with public services to access, generate, evaluate and apply evidence about what works in addressing key economic and societal challenges; and
  • draws on its work with Ministers and public services, to advance understanding of how evidence can inform and improve policy making and public services and contribute to theories of policy making and implementation.

Through secondments, PhD placements and its Research Apprenticeship programme, the Centre also helps to build capacity among researchers to engage in policy relevant research which has impact.
