Description

Policy-makers and Commissioning Groups

Impact planning workshop focused on research uptake primarily through Policy-makers and Commissioning Groups. Invitees facilitating the discussions will include:

Dr Chris Roberts (Welsh Government) – Chris leads a team within the Social Research and Information Division, Welsh Government, providing research and evaluation support to policy colleagues in the Department of Health and Social Services. The role involves commissioning research and undertaking projects in-house, as well as promoting the use of evidence in the policy process more broadly. He also acts as Deputy Chief Social Researcher. For a number of years Chris has been Principal Investigator for Wales on the WHO collaborative Health Behaviour in School-aged Children (HBSC) study. This study takes place across Europe and North America and aims to enable a deeper understanding of how social circumstances and developmental processes influence young people’s health. Chris recently completed part-time doctoral work looking at the barriers and facilitators to the use of RCTs for evaluating social policies.

Sarah Evans (CU RIS Engagement Officer) - based in the Research and Innovation Services team with responsibility in training in research and innovation based engagement activities.
