Communications and impact

Doing great research is only a part of a think tank’s mission. In order to be effective, think tanks must also communicate their findings to a range of stakeholders. These articles and resources tackle a range of issues, from types of communication outputs (both digital and ‘traditional’ formats), to planning for impact, and understanding research uptake, and policy influence.
