Roundtable report: Co-produced evidence and robust methodologies

On 6th December, the Carnegie UK Trust, together with the Newcastle University’s Institute for Social Renewal, hosted a roundtable aiming to raise understanding and awareness of the challenges associated with producing robust evidence appropriate to participatory policy and practice, and the need to increase investment in research seeking to test innovative methodologies.

The roundtable provided an opportunity to bring together key voices from across many sectors to consider the role of co-produced evidence. Co-production is clearly an attractive proposition, embedding principles of inclusivity, sharing decision making power and mutual respect.

This report summarises the issues raised at our roundtable discussion and gives some suggestions of potential next steps.
