Call for proposals: Support for evidence-based policy making

The European Commission has launched a specific call for proposals to develop networks of knowledge brokerage initiatives, in support of evidence-based policy and practice. The selected projects will support international cooperation in the development of ‘knowledge brokerage’ mechanisms in the field of education and training. These mechanisms are intended to strengthen the links between research, policy and practice. Their main role is to make the results of research on education and training understandable and accessible and to bring research to the attention of policy and decision-makers and practitioners. A number of different activities ranging from studies to exchanges and the organisation of events could be funded under this call.

Budget:  EUR 500 000 (individual grants of approx. EUR 165 000)

Deadline: 25 September 2009
