Evidence Synthesis to inform policy and business decision-making

This course will run on 21 November 2019 in Lancaster.
The Early Bird rate ends on 16 September 2019!

This one-day course will introduce you to Evidence Synthesis. It will give you the knowledge, skills and confidence to carry out an Evidence Review Synthesis for an area of Natural Environment research of your personal interest. You will gain and improve skills in undertaking an evidence review – from inception and question formulation with clients, to undertaking a systematic search and data extraction, and reporting. We will also cover the nature and application of different synthesis methodologies within different evidence contexts, policy research, evidence synthesis, mapping and meta-analysis. The training involved hands-on group exercises in developing review questions and undertaking a review.

“Brilliant course. I am now very confident on the components of an evidence review. The practical activity in the afternoon was brilliant – really good to put the skills into practice.” (PhD student from King’s College London)
