Valuing Different Perspectives (April 2014 – November 2015)
The project sought to evaluate previous co-produced interventions produced by researchers and community organisations in the neighbourhood of Wester Hailes, west Edinburgh. In doing so, it also built in a comparison of academic-led and co-produced approaches to evaluating the outcomes of the previous co-produced outputs. This enabled a comparison of the usefulness of different types of knowledge that were produced.
Additional outcomes included a co-produced report on evaluating research as well as the two project evaluations.
