A meeting of the SSISI will take place on Tuesday, 12th April 2011, starting at 6:00 pm [SHARP], in the Royal Irish Academy, 19 Dawson Street, Dublin 2. The session is titled Symposium on Research Capacity and Policy Making, and contributions will be made by Dr Rory O’Donnell (NESC), Prof. Frances Ruane (ESRI), Prof. Brendan Whelan (TILDA, TCD), and Mr Robert Watt (Department of Finance). This symposium will consider the use of research to generate evidence for economic and social policymaking in Ireland over the last 50 years, the ways in which research enters the policy formulation process and the development of Ireland’s capacity in this area.
