Evidence-Based Policy Research Methods
Developing competence and specific skills to effectively perform evidence-based academic or policy-oriented research is essential for knowledge creation and decision-making, whether in business, government or civil society. The Evidence-Based Policy Research Methods (EPRM) course, offered by UNU-MERIT aims to equip participants with the fundamental tools for designing and analysing evidence-based research.

  • Tesla to build world's largest lithium ion battery in Australia
    South Australia will install the world's largest lithium ion battery in a 'historic' deal with electric car firm Tesla and energy company Neoen.

    The battery will protect the state from the kind of energy crisis which famously blacked out the state. Tesla boss Elon Musk confirmed a much-publicised promise to build it within 100 days, or do it for free. The 100-megawatt (129 megawatt hour) battery should be ready this year.

    The Tesla-built battery, paired with a Neoen wind farm, will operate around the clock and be capable of providing additional power during emergencies, the government said.

    Musk's 100-day pledge will begin once an electricity grid interconnection agreement has been signed. Tesla has been expanding its battery business alongside its car production.

    South Australia has suffered from blackouts since September last year, leading to a political spat over energy policy.
