Peter O’Neill of The Alliance for Useful Evidence will be presenting at our next Market Research Society network meeting on Wednesday 5th April.
The Alliance for Useful Evidence is a network of individuals from across government, universities, charities, business and local authorities in the UK and internationally. The Alliance promotes the use of high quality evidence to inform decision making across social policy.
This event will be of interest to individuals in charities, government, academia, local authorities, practitioners, think tanks, and businesses who are interested in useful evidence in policy making.
The session will begin with an introduction from Albert Hamilton, Chief Executive of CARD Group and Chair of the Market Research Society NI.
This event is open to MRS members, staff of MRS Company Partners and anyone interested in enhancing the reputation of research, developing opportunities for professional networking and best practice exchange in Northern Ireland.
