This chapter analyses how research use can be improved in policy settings. It notes the relative dearth of properly evaluated studies. It identifies strategies that address both research supply and research demand issues, and the interplay between them. It also details the strategies that draw on broader models of the policy process. It emphasizes the role of wider policy networks. It illustrates how interaction and intermediation shape the connection between research and policy.

Keywords:   research use, policy contexts, research supply, research demand, policy networks
