Pre-project research use at Apex Scotland

Improving research use in the third sector
Published on 19 Nov 2012

This report details the use of research across Apex Scotland and identifies ideas about where improvements can be made. This report represents a baseline picture of research use at the beginning of a project, funded by Apex Scotland and the ESRC.

The project is focused on improving the use of research throughout Apex Scotland, and drawing wider lessons from this about how research use can be improved across the third sector, and relationships between research producers (primarily academics) and the third sector can be improved. The project ran from July 2011- July 2012.
