Game Change: How Researcher-Practitioner Partnerships Are Redefining How We Study Crime

Description

NIJ Conference 2012 Opening Plenary
Wednesday June 18, 2012

When researchers and practitioners work side by side, they can maximize their problem-solving abilities. The research partner can focus on the data and the science; the practitioner can focus on interpreting the findings and applying them in the field. In the plenary panel, panelists described the benefits, challenges and pitfalls of researcher-practitioner partnerships with a focus on the financial benefits to the practitioner.
