Why should you attend the summit

Howard White, CEO of Campbell Collaboration, invites people to attend the event in London with pre-summit workshops from 24th and 25th, and sessions on the 26th to the 28th of September. These sessions are about new evidence, global experiences in the use of generated evidence, best practices in knowledge translation, and improved institutional approaches to producing and using evidence.

Howard explains in brief what the summit is, and why policy makers, researchers, practitioners and others interested in evidence-based decision making are coming from all over the world to participate.

Building a culture of evidence in the United States
The use of data and evidence in policymaking has begun to take hold in the United States, with mechanisms being established at the federal, state and local levels to shift more funding toward programs proven to work.

A panel chaired by Michelle Jolin, with Karen Anderson, Andrew Feldman, and David Medina will discuss some of the successes in promoting evidence-based policymaking in the United States, including the establishment of the Evidence-Based Policymaking Commission, and a discussion about what may lie ahead following the 2016 election.
