About this Project
This project will promote and facilitate partnerships between a wide range of stakeholders researchers, policy makers, the criminal justice system, community organisations and people directly and indirectly affected by the issues and:
- Identify and address significant gaps in GBA research
- Facilitate engaged research that will be translated into social action and societal change
- Bridge the evidence–practice gap that currently exists
- Accelerate the adoption of new evidence in professional education and training, policy formulation and practice.
- Establish relationships across the island of Ireland, the UK, the EU and internationally.
"Engaged research and research translation aim to bridge the evidence to practice and policy gap."
