Abstract

Whilst much of the focus on policy impact and knowledge exchange is on what researchers need to do, there is less coverage of how much academics have done. This risks painting a picture that there is little knowledge exchange (KE) going on between researchers and policy institutions, and that it is particularly difficult to do. In this post, Sarah Foxen, Naomi Saint and Laura Webb, from Parliament’s Knowledge Exchange Unit, outline the work that researchers have done over the past two years with Parliament. Thanks to the commitment, time and efforts of these researchers, Parliament has greater access than ever before to research evidence and expertise from increasingly diverse sources, to strengthen its scrutiny of Government, debate and legislation.
