GREO funds incubator projects that bridge the gap between research, policy, and practice. These one-time projects focus on actively applying evidence to reduce harm from gambling.
There are two streams of incubator projects: policy focused and community-engaged research.
In these projects, research teams study gambling issues that can inform policy creation. Based on their research, teams will select share their findings and related KTE strategies with policy-makers within the context of the broader evidence base that exists in the field.
In these projects, community organizations partner with research teams in order to acquire the evidence they need to improve programs and services. The research team and the community partner work together to develop a plan that addresses their information needs. This may involve knowledge inquiry, knowledge synthesis, and/or the creation of a knowledge product.
