The Network of Researchers on Policy and Programme Evaluation of the French Evaluation Society is pleased to invite you to a free research seminar on: Methods for Synthesizing Knowledge, to be held on December 10th 2012 at Paris-Dauphine University, Amphitheater 11.(Access plan)
The promotion of evidence-based policy by an increasing number of national governments and international organisations has triggered the issues of gathering available evidence on the impact of public interventions, assessing its credibility, and providing policy-makers with knowledge syntheses. Two state-of-art methods have emerged up to date. The first approach builds on the tools of evidence based medicine: systematic review and meta-analysis. The second approach, called realist synthesis, is rooted in social sciences methodologies. This research seminar will present and discuss the available methods. English will be the working language.
Thanks in advance for confirming your participation with the registration form below as soon as possible at firstname.lastname@example.org as the number of attendants will be limited. This is seminar is free, we would like to specify that you will have to take the charge of you lunch.
