The N8 Policing Research Partnership (N8 PRP) will be hosting a half-day workshop on the methodological and conceptual opportunities and challenges presented by the ‘Evaluation of Research Co-Production and Impact’.

  • Questions of funding research co-production and evaluating impact.


Heather Campbell from the University of Sheffield will present key findings from her N8 ‘Co-Production’ report – http://www.n8research.org.uk/research-focus/urban-and-community-transformation/co-production/, followed by a series of other brief presentations and a structured discussion.
