PRO-RES is an advocacy project with two phases. The first phase was to build a framework guiding ethics and integrity across all non-medical sciences based on secondary research and consultations with a range of stakeholders. In the second phase, we are moving toward with the mid-term conference as a marker. During this phase, we need to find ways to encourage policymakers and their advisors to make use of ‘good’ research evidence. Please engage with us and help ensure the use of evidence-based policy and challenge the tendency to ‘policy-biased’ evidence.
