The purpose of this panel is to discuss how researchers and policymakers work together in two Regional Education Laboratory (REL) research alliances to develop research agendas aimed at changing policy and practice and to provide practical lessons for researchers about the challenges and solutions to working in a research alliance context. The main content of the panel discussion will focus on three key issues that have emerged in their research alliance work--stakeholder engagement, capacity for research, and evidence use. The panel will describe how each key issue manifested in both featured alliances, explore variation in the approach to each issue, and discuss lessons that can be drawn from each alliance's experience to improve research alliance work. At the close of the panel, the moderator will provide a short response to the panelists' presentation and will engage the audience in a facilitated question-and-answer session about the key issues presented.
