On 4 March 2013, the Government announced a new network of ‘what works’ evidence centres at an event hosted at Nesta with ESRC, BIG Lottery, Cabinet Office and others.
The What Works Network, a key action in the Civil Service reform plan, will consist of two existing centres of excellence – the National Institute for Health and Clinical Excellence (NICE) and the Educational Endowment Foundation – plus four new independent institutions responsible for gathering, assessing and sharing the most robust evidence to inform policy and service delivery in tackling crime, promoting active and independent ageing, effective early intervention, and fostering local economic growth. A What Works National Adviser will chair the Network.
