continuous stakeholder engagement for research dissemination. Introduction Mental health care resources are finite. In order to ensure service users receive the highest quality health care, evidence about the most effective and acceptable treatments needs to be fully incorporated into health care policy and practice.

questions (such as, for example, the issue of local air quality) were the key elements of this EC call. The call was widely publicized by the network and a total of twenty-seven eligible applications were received, indicating the strength and diversity of the science shop movement, with four projects eventually being funded. These dealt with health effects of noise from wind turbines; cycling and air pollution; optimizing public transport for the elderly; and mental health care for immigrant communities. Even where these applications were unsuccessful, productive networks

This label has stuck
