PEDAL Conference 2024

11 September, 2024 @ 9:00 am

Innovative ways to bridge the gap between evidence and action for babies and children

Join us at PEDAL’s 2024 conference to hear more about the new and different ways researchers, policy makers and practitioners are working together successfully to improve outcomes for children. This is a unique opportunity to think creatively about how to overcome the challenges in translating research into action. We will explore new methodologies to understand and implement “what works”, and ground-breaking approaches to put evidence into the hands of those who can make a difference to children’s lives and life chances around the globe.

Taking place in the renowned Faculty of Education, this annual conference provides a valued platform for networking, knowledge exchange and collaboration. Tickets always sell out, so book your place soon!
