To ensure research has an impact, it has to get to the right people, in the right form, and at the right time.
Communications products that resonate are personalized, relevant, and designed and distributed in ways that stand out from today’s information overload. Compelling narratives—delivered in plain English—illustrate research in practice and bring to bear the impact of evidence-based policy on real people’s lives.
