About Evidence Cafes

Evidence Cafe logoEvidence Cafés aim to bridge the gap between research and practice, enabling participants to explore how research might inform their practice, and giving academics access to practice-based insights on the research from practitioners. Evidence Cafés usually last between 2h and 3h, though they have also been run over one or two days.

Each Evidence Café is characterised by the knowledge exchange between academics and practitioners. Cafés are facilitated by an evidence-based champion (EBC) from the host organisation, a research champion, an academic specialising in knowledge exchange and an academic from a relevant research project.
