Abstract

This paper examines the effectiveness of postgraduate student projects' contribution to meeting public and voluntary service needs for evaluation and increased research awareness. We identify four sets of skills to which organizations need access in order to raise awareness and utilisation of research. Reflecting on specific projects, we identify areas in which both students and organizations have benefited. We also identify some of difficulties associated with this kind of project work and propose some constructive solutions.
