12-5pm 3rd December 2014, Teacher Building, St Enoch Square, Glasgow

To celebrate 40 years of supporting policymakers and practitioners, the Idox Knowledge Exchange is hosting free conference and networking event in Glasgow this December.

The event will showcase examples of current work in the evidence landscape, looking at how evidence should be demand driven rather than supply led. It will explore how how access to evidence and research is being brokered across the UK.
