In today's enlarged European Union, the demand for policy-relevant evidence is greater than ever before. Policymakers need accurate and timely input from the research community in order to assess socio-economic challenges and propose effective strategies for tackling them. This guide offers practical advice on how to build a functional communications interface between researchers and policymakers. Advocating a cooperative approach to the policy design process, it is specifically tailored to meet the needs of those involved in EU-funded socio-economic research projects. Communicating research for evidence-based policymaking provides essential help in creating policy briefs, project websites, flyers and brochures. It offers insights into dealing with the press and contains valuable suggestions on how to organise a final conference. With this guide, researchers should be better able to develop and implement a successful dissemination strategy.
