Call for abstracts for the REECAP organised sessions – EAAE congress 2021
Date: 2021-01-02, Image: (c) EAAE
REECAP would like to submit REECAP related papers jointly as organised sessions at the EAAE congress, to be held hopefully in Prague (20-23 July). If you would be interested in participating in the proposal for a REECAP organised session(s), we welcome contributions. Please send us an abstract by the 27th January.
The REECAP board will review the proposals and select those to be included in the organised session(s) proposal(s) to the EAAE Congress.
In addition to the organised session, REECAP is also planning to organize the next REECAP meeting as a pre-congress symposium, before the EAAE 2021 congress. This symposium will include training, a pre-registration of protocols session, a keynote presentation and round-table discussions.
For further information and deadlines :

Behavioural Public Policy 2020, 48 pages, doi:10.1017/bpp.2020.17
How to make sure that the encouraging conclusions obtained from small scale randomized controlled trials can be carried forward to policy-makers without the risks of misguiding them into the wrong direction? This article puts forward 12 simple proposals spanning researchers, policy-makers, funders and stakeholders, which can help to address the scalability issue. It has a double virtue: it helps researchers to improve the quality of their research by pinpointing the situations when experimental results deserve to be communicated with greater care; and, by highlighting and acknowledging a number of research biases, and proposing to correct them, it also contributes to improve the credibility of well-conducted research. Although most examples are drawn from the education and health experimental literature, this article is of course extremely pertinent for REECAP members.
Reading recommendation: The publications of the European Network for Rural Development
