He also presented the results of a consultation conducted with UK parliamentarians on the value of an Evidence Information Service.

Dr Nicola P Randall, Director, Centre for Evidence-Based Agriculture, Harper Adams University, gave an overview of the evidence review methods used by Eklipse, a European-funded project to promote better policy decisions on the environment.

Dr Alison Weightman, Director, Specialist Unit for Review Evidence (SURE), introduced SURE. She talked briefly about its work conducting systematic reviews.  Nigel Morgan, Cardiff University Library Services, informed about the rapid review undertaken by information professionals at Cardiff University for the Food from the Oceans Evidence Review Report.  Louise Edwards, Manager AE Cardiff Hub, presented a case study to illustrate a form of scoping review.
