With R&D funding set to rise over the next ten years, CaSE and the Wellcome Trust are looking at how best to make the case to ensure we secure the benefits of this investment. To help us with this, and ensure we’re taking an objective view on our work as advocates, we commissioned policy specialists Public First to assist us.
This project includes reviewing the existing literature on what makes a successful campaign, profiling other campaigns, identifying key tools for campaigning, and exploring the public’s attitudes to different types of advocacy. After working to refine these different models of advocacy, we published our findings in Summer 2020.
