In May 2016 ESRC and the Joseph Rowntree Foundation are planning to launch a call for applications to establish an evidence centre for UK housing.
The Centre will be about connectivity, accessibility and integration of evidence and joining up different stakeholders and sectors in establishing recommendations for housing policy and practice. It will be tasked with synthesising existing research, bringing together survey data, and developing a pipeline of evidence on housing. It will communicate its outputs in an actionable format to key audiences with the aim of embedding knowledge in practice at local, devolved administration and national scales.
The Funders will run a consortium building event on 2 June, in London, between 10am-4pm. The aim of the event is for potential applicants to have an opportunity to build the innovative partnerships and collaborations that the Funders are hoping to see in the bids to host the Centre.
