The Fourth Industrial Revolution: Whose Opportunity? Whose Threat?
Bridging the divide between research and practice in science policy
Robust research on research is critical to support effective decision-making and an evidence-based science and innovation system. How meta-research is funded, supported, incentivised, published and generally communicated shapes what is available, discoverable and known by science policy practitioners to use and build upon – and to build the science and innovation system. Bringing together funders, institutions, publishers, and researchers, the panel will explore how knowledge is shared and exchanged by science policy researchers and practitioners, the challenges faced in bridging the divide between research and practice and how innovation in funding, publishing and the research ecosystem is engendering a shift to a more connected and effective research system.
