CECAN had its official project launch meeting in March 2016 at the beautiful Barnett Hill Conference Centre, in the heart of the Surrey hills. We had a fantastic attendance of team members and co-funders, getting to know one another and sharing ideas around how the CECAN Centre can best operate to achieve its short and long term objectives.
Through a mixture of plenary and break-out sessions, we discussed the difficulties currently faced by policymakers in evaluating complex social policies, explored the various tools and methodologies CECAN will use to try and overcome these difficulties, and came up with a range of 'real world' Nexus based problems that our co-funders wish us to work upon.
