Understanding data

We are skilled in the investigation of large-scale complex data, applying sophisticated analytical and interpretive knowledge to ensure findings are communicated in a way that is relevant and understood.

Communication and dissemination

We synthesise and present our findings in ways that deliver incisive and relevant information. We want policymakers, stakeholders, partners and employers to be able to use our research to influence behaviour and decisions.

In accomplishing this, we place particular emphasis on clear communication and dissemination and, by exploring innovative ways of communicating beyond conventional published reports, we ensure research outputs are accessible and attractive to a range of users.
