We are delighted to announce Evidence Week in the UK parliament. The first of its kind, Evidence Week will run from 25th to 28th June 2018 and will bring together MPs, peers, parliamentary services and people from all walks of life across the UK to talk about why evidence matters. We will be highlighting the role of the House of Commons Library and POST and sharing insights into the work of parliamentarians in seeking and scrutinising evidence.
We look forward to a week of lively discussion about how to use and improve research evidence, with a drop-in installation in Upper Waiting Hall, and a collaborative programme of meetings, briefings and training across both Houses.
The week is an initiative of Sense about Science, the House of Commons Library, Parliamentary Office of Science and Technology and House of Commons Science and Technology Committee, and is being held in partnership with SAGE Publishing with events and briefings being produced in collaboration with community organisations, research and regulatory bodies.
