strategies

Document that builds on the strategic framework for 2011-14 by setting key outcomes to support innovation in priority areas of our business.

Strategy document which illustrates IRISS's activities – through examples of its work – from 2009-11, and sets out its planned strategy for 2012-15.

The current structure of three interconected programmes – knowledge media, evidence-informed practice, and innovation and improvement – which has established IRISS's unique identity will be built upon to create the concept of IRISS as both a hub for expertise and knowledge, and a bridge between research and practice and between ideas and implementation.

This research was commissioned by the Social Care Institute for Excellence (SCIE) and carried out by a team from the Institute for Sustainability, Health and Environment at the University of the West of England, Bristol, between November 2009 and June 2010.

It complements other work undertaken as part of SCIE’s Sustainable Social Care Programme, including the Learning Network run by the Local Government Information Unit (LGiU).
