We also held an Enterprise Partners Innovation Summit at Microsoft headquarters, plus a matchmaking event between Seattle cohort graduates and those same enterprise partners.At these startup “speed dating” events, we pair a curated portfolio of startup companies with some of Microsoft’s key partners and customers.

Using a speed-dating format, we designed a two-hour event that gave policy officials and researchers seven opportunities to meet, each lasting six minutes each.

They used this time to exchange information about their work, sharing their policy challenges (from the civil servants) and their research findings and methods (from the researchers).

For the first such event, we collaborated with the Policy Lab team and with the Cabinet Office Social Action team who set the policy challenge as: How can the resilience and capacity of communities be maximised so that they are able to survive, adapt and grow despite chronic stresses and acute shocks?

Keri Facer and I invited researchers whose work would offer different perspectives on this question, drawing in particular on the Connected Communities programme funded by the AHRC.

One strand of the Open Policy Making agenda is about using a broader range of evidence to inform policy.

For example the What Works centres were set up to enable policy officials to access research and make use of it for better decision making.In designing this event, we saw it as a two-way exchange – bringing Arts and Humanities research to the attention of policy officials and bringing the needs of policy officials to the attention of academics.Introducing the event, Jill Rutter of the Institute for Government pointed to the opaqueness of government to many people from the outside.In contrast Arts and Humanities research is less visible and familiar to policy officials although there are various pockets of interactions between researchers within these traditions and civil servants (such as these examples).Arts and humanities research covers about 50 fields from media and communication to history, literature to curating, design to theatre.Generally arts and humanities research receives less public funding than other areas.
