In Conversation with…: Forging Powerful Change Communities

The Jacobs Foundation prioritises supporting evidence-based practice by creating new, collaborative ways of working between researchers and practitioners. In the second instalment of our new ‘In conversation with’ series, Jacobs Foundation Program Manager, Cathrin Jerie, shares both the challenges and ‘magic’ of bringing people from different fields and sectors together for collaborative work.

Cathrin explains her work in developing three cross-sectoral partnerships that support and incentivize researchers and practitioners to create evidence-based education practices. LSX, LEAP, and the Coalitions for evidence-inspired action.
