SRA’s EBASG Co-Sponsors Harvard Workshop on Methods for Research Synthesis

The October 3-4, 2013, workshop at the Harvard Center for Risk Analysis focused on improving research synthesis in policy analysis contexts.

Estimating and synthesizing research results from across disciplines for use in policy is challenging. The questions this workshop addressed included evaluating synthesis methods, developing selection criteria for these methods, applying those criteria, and identifying current research needs.
