New Research & Policy Digest for the Northern Ireland Executive

I am delighted to announce that emhconnect and 'sister' company AJ Enterprises have been awarded a joint three-year contract to produce a new quarterly Research & Policy Digest for Northern Ireland’s Department for the Economy, following a competitive tendering process.

The aim of the new Digest is to provide policy makers and stakeholders in Northern Ireland with quick and easy access to relevant local, national and international studies and strategies.

Both of our organisations launched our own learning and skills digests in 2012, following four years producing similar briefings for members of a UK-wide business-education-government forum. The UK Digest, which I produce, and Informed Scotland, published by AJ Enterprises, provide subscribers with monthly intelligence on research, policy and practice across government, education, business and the wider community. They encourage and enable connections to be made across the learning and skills landscape. Subscribers include national bodies, businesses, local authorities, colleges and other organisations working in the field.

Angela and I are delighted to collaborate on creating the new digest for the Department. Winning the tender recognises our track record of keeping busy people up to date and well briefed on the issues that matter. We’re looking forward to working with the Northern Ireland team to provide a useful resource for them and their stakeholders.

This is a good example of the tailored services I offer clients. If you are interested in similar services, including both face-to-face and written policy briefings, please get in touch.
