"Doing high quality and policy relevant research is at the core of the raison d’être of think tanks and policy research organisations and, when this fails, so does the think tank. But what exactly does policy relevant research mean? How do you ensure your research is relevant for decision making? How do you engage your stakeholders to validate the relevance of your research?

To be relevant for policy and practice, and to ensure its impact, research needs to be linked to its context. It needs to respond to existing problems and recognised by the stakeholders involved. A key step on this is reflecting (and drafting) an organisation’s research agenda. A research agenda guides the research efforts of an organisation; it helps to articulate different initiatives into common goals; and it also aids organisations in communicating their focus and area of expertise."
