The Observatoire métropolitain is an experimental
project whose goal is to develop the decisionmaking tools required
to encourage economic, social, and cultural development in the region.

Founded in 1972, the Institute for Research on
Public Policy is an independent, national, non-profit organization.

providing insight and sparking debate that will contribute to the
public policy decision-making process and strengthen the quality
of the public policy decisions made by Canadian governments, citizens,
institutions and organisations.
Research/knowledge transfer is a relatively new concept for health-related
research organizations. There is an increased awareness of the
benefits of evidence-based decision-making, and there are an increasing
number of people who are responsible for taking research and making
it accessible to those who need and can use it. The CRTN is a
network of such people. The CRTN is a membership-based organization
for those individuals who are involved in or interested in research/knowledge
transfer (RT/KT). It is primarily an electronically-based organization,
with the majority of membership services and resources to be offered
through its website.
A collaborative research team is conducting a Needs,

The Institute for Policy Research (IPR) is an interdisciplinary
public policy research institute founded in 1968 at Northwestern

Moving To Opportunity is a national demonstration program with
sites in Baltimore, Boston, Chicago, Los Angeles, and New York.
It has been operated by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban
Development since 1994. The MTO demonstration provides the first
opportunity to measure definitively and to understand the impacts
of a change in neighborhood on the social well-being of low-income
public housing families.
The ABCD Institute spreads its findings on capacity-building
community development in two ways: (1) through extensive and substantial
interactions with community builders, and (2) by producing practical
resources and tools for community builders to identify, nurture,
and mobilize neighborhood assets.
