The Sax Institute presents a new conference on knowledge mobilisation in Sydney on July 4 - 5. The conference will focus on the best ways to increase the use and impact of evidence in policymaking, including the processes, resources and skills needed.
Change. Opportunity. Vision.
This year, the Institute developed a new Strategic Plan to enable us to deliver effectively on our mission. We developed an innovative training course for early career researchers, and the SEARCH collaboration was awarded $2.8million in new funding for its next phase. Read about our achievements in our most recent Annual Report.
New training courses
One of our main aims at the Sax Institute is to build ways for researchers, policymakers and practitioners to ensure policy and practice are based on the best available evidence. Our new training program is designed to develop skills in using research and evaluation in policy and practice and for working collaboratively.
Measuring the impact of research
World-renowned public health expert Professor Trish Greenhalgh OBE (pictured) will return to Australia this March to deliver a public lecture in Sydney on 19 March along with NHMRC CEO Anne Kelso. Hosted by the Sax Institute and the three NHMRC partnership centres, the lecture will discuss what is needed to measure impact.
SEARCH reveals opportunities to reduce child injury burden
The number of preventable injuries among Aboriginal children could be reduced by addressing broader social factors, according to SEARCH researchers, who found family and community wellbeing were protective against child injury.
