Research translation is about ensuring the knowledge our research generates evidence-based change in policy and practice. ISCRR adopts an active approach to research translation, looking to provide our partners with practical insights throughout the course of a project. We have considerable expertise in interpreting and contextualising the insights from academic research into ‘real world’ environments. We tailor our approaches based on the decision makers, end users and other stakeholders involved. ISCRR also has expertise in collaborating with and supporting organisations to integrate research findings into sustainable policy and practice change.

How we translate research

Research Summaries

Research summaries condense the key findings and implications from projects into a brief and accessible format. These assist key decision makers to quickly grasp the key messages from research to assist decision making.

Research Syntheses

These reports draw on ISCRR’s depth of local industry-focused research and combine the evidence in order to answer specific research questions. By mining previous projects we provide timely insights without the need to commission new primary research.

Interactive Workshops

Through interactive workshops and roundtables we guide our partners through the interpretation of research insights and how they can be translated into business improvements. These sessions bridge the gap between research and industry expertise and involve the two-way sharing of information.

Guides to Implementation

Our Implementation Guides draw together insights from a range of ISCRR research products to provide the next steps of how evidence can be translated into policy and practice change.
