Dialogue Project Case Studies

Dialogue project case studies provide a brief summary of key impacts, messages and lessons from each dialogue project co-funded by Sciencewise. In addition to background and basic information about the project they focus on:
•    The impact from the project on policy and policy makers
•    What the public said
Case studies also summarise the dialogue activities together with what worked especially well and less well

Listed below are the case studies produced following completion of Sciencewise funded projects.
