Upcoming Events

REL Northeast & Islands and the research alliances it supports produce a range of events to bridge research, policy, and practice and to build capacity across the region.

  • Bridge Events are forums for policymakers, practitioners, and researchers to discuss together the applications and implications of specific research studies or a body of evidence. Please click here to view all REL Bridge Events.
  • Skill-Builder Workshops help increase the analytical capacity of educators and researchers on topics such as data use, designing program and policy evaluations, and creating coherent research agendas.

Events may take several forms—from webinars to daylong face-to-face workshops—and they are free and open to all stakeholders.
