Four EIPPEE partners took part in a specially organised symposium session at EERA European Conference on Educational Research entitled: 'Research evidence to policy-making links in education in Europe'. The symposium focused on research studies examining the links between research evidence in policy in education in Europe. This was to provide a basis for understanding the phenomena; studies of actual links provide a ‘bottom up’ means of identifying the nature and range of the issue. It also provided the opportunity to develop conceptual frameworks for the identification, classification and analysis of evidence to policy use and, to enable consideration of what is not practiced and thus the potential for what could be practiced. A further aim of the symposium was to examine the range of practice in different parts of Europe enabling comparative studies of the reasons for such differences and the possibilities for the further development of practice. Thus, the main purpose of the symposium was to share and discuss analytical frameworks and empirical research findings of research to policy links in education in Europe and consider the nature of the research enterprise on evidence to policy links in education in Europe.  

The EIPPEE project presented three papers and supplied a chair and discussant. The first paper reported on findings from the first EIPEE 2010-2011 European Commission funded project which examined evidence informed policy in education in Europe. The second paper reported on a study examining these issues of linking evidence to policy at the school level in relation to school improvement in Hungary. The third paper reported on a study of the development of knowledge centres in Denmark, Norway and Sweden.
