Wales Centre for Public Policy is working with What Works Scotland, Queen’s University Belfast, the Alliance for Useful Evidence and a range of What Works Centres to increase the impact of the What Works network across the UK, in an ESRC-funded project.
The project involves running a series of summits for policymakers and public services across the devolved nations in Wales, Scotland, and Northern Ireland. These summits, taking place between November 2018 and September 2019, focus on evidence produced by What Works Centres which addresses issues that are priorities for the devolved administrations.
The project aims to:
Share knowledge and learning across What Works Centres
Encourage cross-jurisdictional learning and test out ways in which What Works Centres can engage effectively with devolved administrations
Improve access to What Works outputs by policymakers and public services in devolved administrations
Five summits have been held so far on the following policy areas:
