The second annual evidence base and research conference took place on the 16th October 2014 and was attended by over 50 delegates from across all 3 directorates within the Council. The conference attracted a wide variety of presentations and posters, which outlined the plethora of research activities that were being undertaken. This event provided a unique opportunity for researchers across the council to network, share ideas and discuss further collaborations both with internal and external stakeholders.

Councillor Cotton (Cabinet member for Health & Wellbeing) outlined the importance of research in these times of austerity and how he had utilised the skills of researchers within the Council to inform the service reviews that were being conducted across all council services.

Leader of the Council; Sir Albert Bore spoke about the necessity for joint up working across the directorates and the requirement for aligning policy and practice. He outlined that the mechanism through which effectiveness especially cost effectiveness of services can be determined is only possible through evaluation and research.

The conference organising committee carried out an evaluation of the event which can be downloaded below or by clicking on the image in the article. The next steps are to put together a road map of how we can integrate our research activities in Birmingham City Council, which will ultimately lead to effective, appropriate and sustainable services for the residents of Birmingham.
