BITEs (Brokering Innovation Through Evidence) are short summaries, which aim to break down PenARC research into accessible, bite-sized pieces. These summaries highlight the main findings and impact of our research on practice, providing links and references for more in-depth information and further reading.
PenARC’s BITEs (which can be downloaded below) form part of a national library that spans the work of all 13 ARCs.
