A report for the Alliance for Useful Evidence by Dr Jonathan Sharples, explores what can be drawn from the advances across a range of fields to mobilise research knowledge more effectively across social policy and practice.The report recognises that practitioners work in time-poor and information-rich environments and suggests that a concerted effort is required to build the necessary time, skills and resources within practice to support research-use at scale.  To achieve this, the report suggests that professional bodies should play a coordinating role in supporting evidence-informed practice and setting professional standards, led by practitioners. Strong attachments to university departments and opportunities for cross-over between academics and practitioners will further strengthen the link between academics and practitioners.
