University of York Evidence Synthesis Training

The University of York Policy Engine contracted the Institute for Methods Innovation to provide a training programme on evidence synthesis, to increase policy engagement capacity at the University. Over a six-month period, experts from the Institute for Methods Innovation and Fast Track Impact will provide specialised training on evidence synthesis development, policy briefs and the publication of evidence syntheses to participants from the University of York.


The York Policy Engine (TYPE) connects people, ideas and evidence to drive policy change in the pursuit of public good. Through support to staff and the PhD community at York, TYPE aims to strengthen academic-policymaker engagement and the adoption of evidence generated at York into policy.
