From Research to Intervention: Harnessing Research to Develop Innovative Programming

19 November 2019: 12.00 pm - 2.00 pm
JHub, Haskell House, 152 West End Lane, London, NW6 1SD

Third party research and evidence are often a trigger for action; be it prompting a new approach to a charity’s activity or a new policy response from government. But what happens when research is co-produced by academic bodies and third sector organisations? What is the impact on the interventions that are developed and the groups that are targeted?

In this session, Professor Jill Pell from The Institute of Health and Wellbeing at Glasgow University will tell us how they have successfully partnered with charities and social sector organisations. Highlighting examples of research co-produced with organisations such as British Cycling, the Scottish Football Association and Premiership Rugby, she will explain the benefits of co-produced research for developing novel interventions that target a diverse number of hard to reach sub-groups of the population.

Drawing on her experience she will also talk about how organisations can go about developing these partnerships and crucially, how to get the most from them.

This session is open to all Pears Grantees but will be particularly relevant for Directors, Chief Executives, senior management and trustees of both non-profit and academic organisations that are interested in developing partnerships to advance research and enhance interventions.
