RISCS Project Catalogue 

Knowledge exchange between technical, academic and policy actors is a key priority for RISCS. We are deeply engaged with the academic and policy communities in the UK, delivering high impact work that routinely shapes guidance, advice, and policy processes. One challenge that always comes up is around the ability of those who need research to access it, and to have the information at their fingertips.

Through discussions with policy stakeholders in 2020, we identified a need for a summary of particular evidence of interest from RISCS projects, as well as more awareness of how projects are progressing and any upcoming outputs. This catalogue intended to be a succinct summary of completed and ongoing projects tailored for a policy audience.

We hope that the catalogue will offer opportunities for future collaborations between sectors and for RISCS research feed into policy decisions and analysis where there are synergies.
