IFF’s Evidence Matters series shines a light on the key issues facing the research sector, bringing together some of the industry’s brightest minds to discuss the role and purpose of research in an open and interactive way.

We have seen confidence in all aspects of the research industry undermined in recent years through the failure of polls and through pronouncements on “the death of the expert” but we believe that evidence-based insight continues to have an important role to play in helping people, governments and businesses to better understand the world they exist in and to make better decisions about how they want to exist in it.

Together we have a wealth of knowledge that can help identify the opportunities of uncertainty.
