SERIO assesses and evaluates the impact of public policy, European and locally-funded interventions and organisational strategies. Using a wide range of research methods, as well as drawing on publically available data and previous research, we are able to provide evidence of impact and help plan for the future.
SERIO has extensive evaluation experience, from setting up simple project monitoring, to full social, economic and environmental impact evaluations, working with clients from across the public and voluntary sectors.
Finding out what works and why is an essential task for strategic decision makers in the public, private and voluntary sectors. A good evaluation can provide proof of whether a policy or project has worked or not, and also provide us with intelligence on how to improve services in the future. This can help ensure a greater impact, greater buy-in from staff and better value for money.
What makes us different?
When evaluating a policy or programme it is essential to understand what has come before in that sector, and what is likely in the future. Based at Plymouth University, SERIO collaborates with academics from across the institution, as well as other external specialists, in order to provide clients with a unique level of expertise and insight into niche areas.
We work closely with clients at every stage of the research process to ensure that our final reports, presentations and workshops fulfil their organisational objectives and can be easily translated into action or used to lobby others.
