Danish interest group “Research into Practice and Policy in Public Health” was established during the annual Public Health Conference hosted by the Danish Association for Public Health in October 2013. The interest group is formally placed under the Danish Association for Public Health and is currently in the development phase.

The objective of the interest group is to establish a national forum for exchange of knowledge, experiences and ideas across practice, policy and research in the public health area.

This interest group is for researchers, practitioners and policy makers aiming to improve public health practice and policy. Through meetings and webinars about e.g. cross-sector collaboration, evidence-informed decision making, organizational factors influencing knowledge use and citizens involvement this group aims at improving the procedures for integrating knowledge from research and other types of knowledge into practice and policy.
