Visioning Evidence

Adora Foundation Academic, Policy and Action Research


The Adora Foundation thus engages in these three types of research: academic (peer reviewed); policy (mostly commissioned); and action research (internal, exploratory, iterative, practice-based). 

While understanding and operating within these distinct spheres, the three merge into one in our own internal organisational learning, and together form the evidential backbone of our "do-tank" approach, that is, our "proof of concept" social innovation pilots; and their logically emergent replicable, scaleable and/or transferable social action models.
