The Research Translation & Innovation division hosted 4 workshops, culminating in 5 reports to look at the issues surrounding research, barriers and gaps in knowledge.
Attendees included academics, research funders, policy-makers and programme leads from PHE, the NHS and academia.
Three of the topics covered are among the PHE priorities set out in its 2014 publication From evidence into action: opportunities to protect and improve the nation’s health:
- Best start in life
- Evaluation of public health interventions
Cross cutting themes emerged from the first 3 workshops and are detailed in the cross cutting themes report.
