The vast majority of our work is conducted in collaboration with public sector agencies, non-profit organizations, or other partners who are invested in learning what works in a rigorous and data-informed way. We look for partnerships that involve co-designing and evaluating solutions that are feasible at scale and where our projects can help build internal infrastructure, buy-in, and capacity to support the equitable adoption of best practice.
When selecting which projects to take on, we often ask:
- Does our expertise complement that of the partner organization and are we well-positioned to add value through our work?
- Is a rigorous academic project feasible and publishable in this context?
- If successful, will the results of this partnership be useful to policymakers, scholars, the broader public sector, and the communities they serve?
